— Outdoorcooking —
There's a thin crisp to the air and a stillness to the woods we're walking through. A stillness only to be found in early autumn. Red lingon-berries are gleaming like rubies from the lower bushes. All together we collect them and find ourselves a sunny bank by the small lake. There we make camp, cooking a traditional swedish Råraka (potatoe pancake) and making jam from the berries that we've just collected. Stories of the past, circles around the fire, bringing life to the woodsmen, charcoalers and the lady of the woods. Soon we'll be silent though, since we now enjoy our lunch. The Råraka, slightly salty and fat mixes deliciously with the sweet and sour taste of the lingonberries. Yellow leaves are falling, the firewood snaps a little. We can hear a black woodpecker drumming and calling. It's a good day to be outdoors in Tiveden.
You'll meet with us 9 o' clock in the morning, at Hamgården resort, by the reception. Then we head out by car to our secret lingonberry-treasurehold. Out in the forrest you'll get a guided tour, focused on Tiveden and some fun facts about the berries we're picking. When we have enough berries, we'll create a small campsite, with a small fireplace, tripod and if the weather demands it - a tarp.
