I learn something new everyday here..thank you so much for opening yet another door into the unknown!! hahaha, cause you don't know-what you don't know
Now I know what medlars are & you can make them into jelly...going to have to give this plant a thought, doesn't seem to need too much care and is pretty hardy....got the old-gray matter juices flowing!!
I made jam this year for the first time ever..hahaha, with all the canning I have done & never to have done -up jam..anyway..I put up Barberry jam...yep, you can make jam from Barberries, just might want to be careful as to how much you eat cause it 'could' cause a little digestive irritation, but I tell ya what..it is good!!
My father gave me a book .. edible plants of PA...very good book..I am looking to do even more with the new found knowledge next year!
