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.
2 cups flour 1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup Sugar 1 cup orange juice
1 tsp. Salt 1 egg
2 tsp. Baking powder 1 cup partridgeberries
½ tsp. Baking soda ½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 12 muffin tins.
Mix together dry ingredients.
Combine oil, juice and egg. Mix. Add to dry ingredients. Add berries and nuts.
Bake 350 degrees for 15 – 20 min. till golden brown.
I was searching for a good partridge berry muffin and was referred to your cite….catcancook…..
This recipe is excellent . I live in Newfoundland where partridge berries are usually plentiful in the Fall. I always keep a few gallons in the deep freeze for year round use. I will definately recommend this cite to friends and family.
