When it comes to food I always try to buy local or pick myself so I know I’m getting quality, sometimes thats not possible for everyone to do but diffently try your best. Cranberry sauce is something almost everyone loves, this bright red berry is tart and full of vitamin C.
Growing up in Newfoundland picking any type of berry was normal, we would have different times to pick then. Cranberries and Partridgeberries were the last berry to pick for the season, and they are my favourite berries for Jams, Jellies and Sauces. I can remember many trips to the light house in Port de Grave NL, my dad believed that you should work hard for your food and we did exactly that.
I tried to pick enough cranberries to make cranberry sauce and jelly but they still had a week or more to fully ripe, I have some in a box that I put outside in the sun to continue to ripe. I will share with you a recipe to make the jelly and maybe I will make that recipe soon. I have a recipe here for Partridgeberry Jam the berry is very similar but much smaller.
