Patridgeberries, known as lingonberries in Scandanavia, grew along the cliffs of Maddox Cove when I was young and I picked them every September with my Aunt Esther, my Uncle Ned's wife. We enjoyed each other's company and our time together, walking along the shore, looking for berries, avoiding the dangerous cliff-side. Today that shoreline is part of the East Coast Trail.
Jam requires scones,
or tea buns as we call them.
And so it was. Tea buns and partridgeberry jam with coffee or tea if you prefer.
Hope you have a week of wonderful treats too!
Pass a slice of pie please. And a scone too.
Oh now that looks just so yummy!
I've had lingonberry jam. Oh, so good.
Yum! I sure want some now. 😄
Oh,I like berries! Looks sooo delicious!
Oh my gosh; I used to have those exact same dishes!!!
Jam is so good; haven't had much of it lately, but yummy~!
For only a short time I found imported lingonberries in jars at the grocery store and I much preferred them over cranberries but cranberries grow in abundance in the bogs north of us so that's what we eat in Ontario.
I'm sure the jam is delicious on the biscuits - and I grew up calling them tea biscuits. :-)
Oh yum. And repeat.
We did, EC. We did.
I prefer them to cranberries as well, Judith. Though any jam is delicious with tea biscuits!
The sad reality is I still use the dishes. Many people have discarded them long ago. I could not justify discarding perfectly good dishes.
The jam is delicious, with a unique taste, Tomoko.
Wish I could share it with you, Jan.
It is! Especially with a nice cuppa, Joanne.
It was, Hilary!
A partridgeberry tart is delicious, AC.
We call them Loganberries in the UK. That scone looks very tempting, what a shame I can't reach through the screen and steal it!
I don't believe I have ever had any of these. They look good. I will have to look and see if I can find something at the grocery store.
Wish I could share them with you, Keith!
I don't know if they grow in the US, Emma. They are for more northern climates I believe. Maybe Alaska?
Partridgeberry jam! Now that's pretty special jam!
It is a special jam for sure! A rare one for us since we left Newfoundland!
DELICIOUS jam !!!
i loved those days when mom always preferred homemade jam and other food .
