    I just found a few bushes that are producing very well, and picked about 1/2 gallon. I’ve never used them before, and will proceed with the simple chokecherry jam, first. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    I recommend making it into a syrup for pancakes.

    Save the seeds. The Maidu use the seeds to make necklaces.

    Let me know if you come up with something delicious.



    They were all ripe – so I added an equal amount of elderberries, and about half as much sugar. Great pancake syrup! I will definitely save the seeds – that is a great idea.

    I really think an elderberry/chokecherry syrup or jam will go well with cinnamon or basil. I will be experimenting soon.
