    Your recipe is wrong. You used too much lard and you didn’t even whip it until it’s light and fluffy like whipped cream. You had too much lard in porportion to the berries. I’ve eaten akutaq all my life and I wouldn’t even touch yours. What a gross misrepresentation of a great dessert!

      Dear Shel Marie,
      Thanks for your input: If I may take the chance and benefit from your own akutaq-experience, what kind of proportions between lard/fat and berries would you suggest to use?

    Okay. I live in Alaska and I’ve had real authentic akutaq on many occasions. I was craving it like crazy so i looked this recipe up.

    It was extremely pasty and greasy.
    Not sure what went wrong, but it looks like I’ll just have to have someone make me the real stuff.

    Also in your picture the berries looked like almost whole berries.

    Akutaq I get up here looks like the berries were mashed before even being mixed in, making the whole thing smooth and fluffy.

      Hi Ptarus!
      It would actually be great if you could find some local expert – I’ve never been fortunatly enough to have “authentic” aquataq myself (although I hear that there are plenty of varieties when it comes to actual recipes) myself, so if you could find out what possibly should be done/not done to prepare it “right”, I’d be super-interested in hearing back from you!

    […] Akutaq is relatively hard to come by, so if you really want to give it a whirl, you will likely need to follow one of these DIY recipes at home.  […]
