      How about this- it's my own invention. I cook lots, done that restaurant
      thing, and was reading Euell Gibbons in 8th grade- I think I was
      channeling Bro' Euell on this one.

      Strip a big pot worth of fruit off the Autumn Olive bushes afap (as fast
      as possible) Put a half cup/cup of water in a pot. Cover, bring to a
      boil, add the fruit, recover, then as soon as the cover is warm to the
      touch, open, stir, remove from heat, and using a Foley Food Mill,
      separate the pulp from the seeds.
      This is easy and quick. The seedy mash could become the start of a fruit
      vineagar. Or poultry would probably relish the seeds. The pulp can be
      used for all sorts of recipes directly or frozen or canned for later.
      I used it directly as the base of a merengue pie. The color was an
      outrage, the pie did not survive very long at all. (well, it WAS a
      party) And the Eleagnus fruit is very beneficial to the human organism,
      no doubt full of anti-accidents & who knows? All in all, in terms of a
      ratio of time & effort for harvest & processing vs. results, I'd put it
      up there at the head of the list. It was a piece of cake- or pie.
