Anyone got any knowledge of, or better yet experience with, anything that can be done to make sea buckthorn berries into any palatable food or drink?

I thought I remembered seeing Hugh F-W foraging for sea buckthorn so I checked the River Cottage website out.  His recipe for Sea Buckthorn & Crab Apple Jelly is at: http://www.rivercottage.net/SeasonalRecipes~Octobe.....syrup.aspx

Unfortunately I can't remember what he said it was like or what it was good for/with, so report back if you decide to make it, David!

When we lived in Holland sea buckthorn juice was available. As it is full of jolly good vitamin C I gave it a go. Vile. I think you need to put it with something with quite a good flavour to make it palatable!

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

I sometimes browse a berry or two or even three. It as a strong citrus flavour, but with overtones and aftertaste that become unpleasant if I have more than that. And it's a bit sour.

There must be a way of using it for good stuff, though. Full of vitamins and antoxidents, if that is the term, from what I read.

Maybe a jelly?
