Partridgeberries are a sour berry that is picked in late summer or early fall, they look a lot like cranberries but smaller. Most people usually make partridgeberry jam or jelly with them. But there are still a few that like to bake loafs, pies and cakes with them.
This recipe is one I have enjoyed making for years, partridgeberries are my favourite berry and I can’t get enough of, so when I get the chance the pick them or if someone gives me some I would freeze a few for the winter months, but then I will make jams and jellies and bottle them for the long winter months as well.
Because partridgberries are a sour berry they mix will with apples to make a cobbler or pies.
