Sea buckthorn berries, eaten as they are, are rather bitter and sour. The ideal is to cook them with sugar, to soften their taste and reveal their flavors reminiscent of citrus and cranberry. This local berry is harvested at the very end of summer and should ideally be consumed the same day. This is why its frozen version is very practical to enjoy all year round. You will find sea buckthorn berries in the frozen food aisle in certain markets or specialized grocery stores, or even directly from the producers.
