It was a really good year for Chokecherries. Just the right amount of rain I guess.
I am watching the berries closely.
They will be ready when the berries are black looking and not hard. It will be a race between me and the birds to see who gets the most berries.
I hope they are ready when my baby brother is here on vacation as he is real tall and can help pick. He also likes the Chokecherry Jelly I make.
Jars, Pectin and Sugar are going on my grocery list just in case.
AHHH! I need someone who knows Chokecherries well. There is one tree here with them, but yesterday I found a TON of them! Well, I am pretty sure. I took a berry and tasted it and it indeed was that taste no one can forget.
I'd love to pick a pail full and make jelly, although I'd have to ask the folks who run the reserve first I suppose!
I haven't checked my chokecherries yet.
That is a great picture. Here's to the best chokecherry jelly ever! :-)
My mom used to curse the chokecherries because of what the birds did to her clean clothes on the clothesline after imbibing. I hope you get yours before the birds do!
I hope you beat the birds! ;)
Oooh, chokecherry jelly is yummy!
It's always a good idea to have jars, sugar and pectin on hand "just in case".
I have never heard of Chokecherries
Great! we have been getting cherry's at the store,good and sweet.
Wish the Bennie would make jelly with them but need a cherry seeder.
Oh yummy! I’m tall and would help for just one jar of jelly if I lived close enough. :-).
That sounds delicious! I've never had chokecherry jelly.
