Rowan berries

Recommended Posts

Hi

I just had to harvest some rowan berries ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowan ) as the trees are really  full of them around here, this year.

They are really bitter and need to be frozen before use to release the sugar content .

So I washed/cleaned them and got total 2,8kg berries for the freezer.

Then I got on the net to find some recipes on how to make rowan jelly 

more to come 

cheers

Hi Ande,

Thats really interesting regarding bitterness and freezing to release the sugar content.

We have many 'edible' berries here too, but most are beyond bitter... might try freezing some !

Cheers
Toga
