Haskap Berry Cheesecake

What is Haskap?

What is haskap?
Haskap—also known as blue honeysuckle or honeyberry—was known to the ancient Japanese as “the fruit of longevity.” It originates from the island of Hokkaido—Japan’s northernmost island territory—and was introduced to Canada in the 1950s as an ornamental. By the late 1990s, scientists had selectively bred hardy varieties with tasty fruits that are now prized for their health benefits.
What do haskap berries taste like?
Haskap have their own unique taste, colour and texture. The taste is described as sweet, tangy …intense, like a mix of sweet blueberry, tangy raspberry and rich black currant. They have a purple-blue skin and crimson interior when ripe. Haskap berries have very tiny seeds and thin skin that melts in your mouth.
Are haskap berries good for you?

Deep purply-blue haskap berries are higher in antioxidants, particularly the most important anthocyanin C3G (2049 mg/litre) than wild blueberries (222 mg/litre). Just one serving (100g) of Haskap offers you more Vitamin C than an orange—plus double the Vitamin A! Haskap also has higher contents of calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium than blueberries, oranges, grapes and apples.

Yes, they are good for you!
