Partridgeberry Jelly Salad

Traditional Newfoundland Partridgeberry Jelly Salad

This recipe was given to me by Joy Burt, Emily Mardell's mom. Emily provided the partridgeberries and Joy provided a regional traditional holiday recipe that the family loves. If you can get the berries, this is a delicious celebration of them during holiday season.
