I picked aronia berries yesterday, which are similar to a black currant. They look just like blueberries and are also called Chokecherry berries. The bushes are only 3 feet high and spread out a lot.
Here’s a close up view of them. They are really tart and super high in antioxidants.
Here’s the jam i made from them! I used sure gell and am thinking I could make a pie with this too . Ought to be just the thing to snack on in the dead of winter.
Update- The sure gel didn’t gel. I just opened a jar. That is ok, because I then put it in Jell-O and ate it in the place of cranberries with turkey.
Another update a year later- A great use for these cans of chokecherry berries is to add to a blueberry pie. That’s what I do with them. They blend so well with the mild tasting blueberries.
