Patridgeberry Tarts and Coconut Cream Pie

I love the patridgeberry.  I think it may be my year-round favorite.  It's quite tart and freezes exceptionally well, and  it tastes just as good after being frozen as when fresh.

I was fortunate enough to get to buy three gallons of the ruby-colored gems this fall.  On the weekend I made a small batch of jam and a few pies. Patridgeberry tarts was a staple in Newfoundland homes years ago. 

I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of making pastry, but when I do I usually make enough for a couple different types of pies.  This weekend, it was patridgeberry tarts and a coconut cream pie.
