Rowanberries - sorbus aucuparia

These berries are rich on vitamin A and C and the health bringing minerals potassium (kalium), calcium (kalsium), magnesium, iron (jern) and phosphorus (fosfor). They make a colorful and fresh tasting gely to serve with any wild game dinner.

Fun fact: Just like the hazel tree, the rowan tree too was considered magical and sacred in the old times. It was believed that this tree protected people and houses from witches and other malevolent beings and from storms and lightening. In the Norse mythology the rowan three is the tree of the thundergod Tor´s wife; Siv (Sif). 
 The rowan berries has aslo been widely used to cure and heal various medical illnesses and to predict the snow cover for the forthcoming winter. We have an old saying that goes: The rowan tree will not bear a heavy load of fruit and a heavy load of snow in the same year.
