Re: [rewildnewengland] Sunday Gathering
- I used this autumn olive recipe last year http://wearemadeofdreamsandbones.blogspot.com/2006/09/autumn-olive-jam-saga.html. This year I'm going to try a batch with honey instead of sugar. The jam is really yummy and definitely worth a try!

Daniel and everyone,
Thank you for sharing the autumn olive love! That spot is absolutely loaded! In two short hours, my girlfriend and I were able to gather more than 7 gallons of fruit. We spent a few hours cleaning them at home (removing stems, leaves, and the occasionally nasty one) and now we have tons of clean,beautiful berries to use in recipes.
Speaking of which, does anyone have an autumn olive recipe they would like to share?
We will be making several gallons into fruit leather. We cook the berries in a bit of water, mash them up, and put them through a colander to remove the seeds (we've heard of others that skip the cooking and simply put them through a foley food mill to remove the seeds, something we'll try if we get a food mill someday). Then we spread out the puree on trays and dehydrate overnight. We're also going to add some puree to apple sauce.
What do you all do with them?
