Traditional Newfoundland Bakeapple Jam
When making Bakeapple jam you want to preserve the berry and keep it whole, don't over cook your jam and when stirring it be very careful. I'm going to share with you a couple of links to other berry jams and the picking and preserving video for you to enjoy.
also I will share with you a link to my new cookbook called Traditional Newfoundland Cooking & Ricipes.
please continue on to the recipe for Traditional Newfoundland Bakeapple Jam.
1. Turn the stove top heat low to medium, then you will need a small boiler.
2. Place berries in boiler and add sugar.
3. Stir Bakeapples occasionally so they don't burn, also be careful not the brake the Bakeapples.
4. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes until berries are cooked and tender but still whole.
5. Then pour hot jam into hot sterilized mason jars, clean around rims before sealing them.
6. Let your jam stay at room temperature over night or 8 hours until all jars have popped. If all jars is sealed you can store in a cool storage room, if not store in fridge until eaten.
Bakeapples are little gold berries that grow in the bog or marshes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, this berry is also called in some places ” Cloud Berries ” and they are hard to find. They are also a well hidden secret, people don’t like to share where they pick them because they are hard to find.
We have been trying to get to this video but you only can pick these berries in late July and early August and I just was never available at that time to pick them. So I’m pleased to finally have them posted on our website for you to enjoy.
I spoke about some safety tips in this video when in picking Bakeapples, most people that enjoys picking any type of berry will already know the grounds they are working on. But for those of you that are planning on picking Bakeapples for the first time I do recommend you take some safety tools with you just incase you fall into the bog. The bog lands and marshes got hidden holds that if your foot falls into you will work very hard to pull your leg out, this is why I recommend you go in picking any berries with someone else.
When you know you are in a Bakeapple marshes you will see a Newfoundland Picture Plant and it looks a lot like a Bakeapple the shape of the top, I will share a beautiful picture for you to see.
