Berry Crazyiness

It was supposed to be a nice family outing, looking for Elderberries, chokecherries, currants and other wild edible berries. While it WAS a fun family outing, it turned into a ChokeCherry Frenzy!!! hahahaha we brought back 22 pounds!! And easily could have picked 20, even 40 pounds more.

I've never made chokecherry jam/jelly/syrup before tonight. Definitely need to learn some tips of the trade.

At least the 6 jars of jam have all "pinged" and set their seals.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, as I have barely made a dent in the haul of cherries, and we are taking our friends out to the "secret spot" next weekend.
