We have a lot of chokecherries lining the property. When they turn purplish black, they are ready to harvest.
|Not quite ready.|
I originally planned to make chokecherry leather but I found it very difficult to separate the fruit from the pit. I don't need any more jam so instead I followed this recipe for chokecherry syrup.
It turned out quite well and I'm looking forward to making more when I get another chance to pick berries.
