Hello and berries. - Hedgecraft Resources

huswyfJul. 29th, 2006 04:46 pm Hello and berries.

Hello All

I've recently joined this community and have some questions about berries.

It looks like this year is going to be a bumper year for berries.  The rowan in our garden is laden with berries, so much so that the weight of them is bending the branches.  Blackberries seem to be in abundance on both wild and cultivated brambles so I'm thinking of doing some preserving.  

We don't tend to get through much jam so that isn't my first choice.  I'm interested in drying, freezing and possibly making fruit leathers and wondered if people here had any experience with the latter.

Some friends are just starting home brewing - we're already giving them our empties - and will hopefully turn any excess fruit into wine. I've eaten fruit leather just not made any and it seems a good way to use up the fruit that isn't eaten fresh.
