I’ve never used them before, and will proceed with the simple chokecherry jam, first. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Let me know if you come up with something delicious. October 3, 2011 at 12:52 pm #1104 JoshuaMember 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.
