The boys picked some chokecherries and some wild plums for me. The first pail of chokecherries, I made into juice. The berries themselves look like jewels to me, the juice is this incredible deep burgundy color. I got a quart of juice and I think we’ll just drink it like that. I have lots more berries I’d like to turn into wine if I can find my recipe! If you have a good chokecherry wine recipe, let me know.
I wish there were more plums because the sauce turned out really nice. I pitted them then ran them through my tomato press. The color of the plum sauce is incredible too, it’s a lovely pumpkin-and-spice orange.
