LIFE is JUST a BOWL of chokeCHERRIES!

At this time of year, all the foodies are going gaga over the fresh crops of so called "stone fruits" like peaches, apricots, plums and cherries. Though not as well known as their larger kin, chokecherries are native to North America and are found almost throughout the continent.

While most chokecherries have a strong astringent flavor they do make a very distinctive jelly or syrup and can also be used for making wine.

We have the early beginnings of a nice little chokecherry thicket started in the back yard. Though this years crop will not be enough to do much with, the juice will be frozen and saved to add to next years crop.
