Making suvalik in Kuujjuaq

Samantha Snowball of Kuujjuaq participates in a suvalik-making contest on Sept. 12. The delicacy is sometimes described as an Inuit fruit salad. Its base is a mayonnaise-like emulsion made by whisking fish eggs and vegetable oil together with a bit of water. Fresh berries are then added to the mix. (Photo by Isabelle Dubois)
