Salmonberry has been a part of the Alaskan indigenous peoples’ diet for thousands of years. A traditional dish called akutaq is served on special occasions, a tasty mixture of animal oils, salmonberry (and other berries), with fish. Young shoots can be eaten both raw or cooked like asparagus. Salmonberry has also been used to flavor beer and wine.
