That sound interesting may have to look into that, did make some plum juice boy that was scrummy  have still got the skin and flesh left so may use that for a small jam.

 

Picked some haw berries and may will do a wine but also some fritters need to look into that,

and other uses, i want to learn as much as possible from what you can pick and eat/drink. it,s so addivtive forageing. i_am_hungry medicine
