Bakeapples and other Berries


Bakeapple



partridge Berry



"Buddy, grab your berry box, we're going up on the barrens after the bakeapples and havin a bit of a boil up. By rights we should have headed up there an hour ago."

"Hold your horses would ya. I'm beat out, I was over to mudder's hauling stuff around, and she only give me a bare-legged cup of tea."

"Come on b'y!"

---
Bakeapple -A yellow orange cluster berry similar in appearance to the raspberry. Found in marshes and bogs. Also called the cloudberry, dwarf mulberry, salmonberry, creeping raspberry or yellow gold. (pictured above)

Bare-legged cup of tea - a cup of tea served without food offered.

Barrens - a plateau with low vegetation where berries often grow.

Bayman - someone who lives outside St. John's. (me, but not my husband)

Beat out - to be tired and out of breath.

Berry box - a wooden box used to transport berries from the berry hills.

Boil up - a meal in the woods.

Buddy - referring to a person whose name is unknown or not easily recalled.

B'y {pronounced; BY} - any male person regardless of age.

By rights - strictly speaking.

  5. Cool post! Bakeapples are on now my shopping list, they look delicious. Berries are my favorite fruit and I would certainly love to take a berry box out to the barrens. The little glossary you wrote at the end was interesting. I love learning terms from all over.

  6. Wow can I come visit you?? :)

  7. Ya know, it's amazing how many things we little islanders got from the 'civilized world'. Over here, we don't say bare-legged, we'd say bare-footed and we also say we're 'tired and beat out'. Funny that 'barrens' is a place where stuff grows. :D Thanks for an interesting read.
