I’ve been meaning to post a few of the recipe Contest Submissions – so here is a neat one, that seems *very* Canadian. It comes from Jen!

Here’s a yummy recipe for Partridgeberry Muffins.  You can easily substitute blueberries, or a combination of blueberries/cranberries, or other berry combinations if partridgeberries are unavailable in your area.  Partridgeberries grow in Newfoundland, Canada. They look like blueberries, but are a burgundy-plum color and taste similar to cranberries although not as bitter.
