About the Chokecherries...........

Went looking for chokecherry bushes, as I said earlier. Couldn't find any. So I ordered some oneline. Just in the mood to have them.

Thanks for the comments Debra and Kat.

Debra, you can make wonderful syrup and jelly. Sooooooooooooooooo good!!!!!

Kat, you are so lucky you have so many of them. I ordered 10. That should get me started.

About the syrup. Years ago, my mom made great chokecherry syrup. One summer day she had some lady friends over and they poured the syrup over ice cream. They all wanted seconds and some wanted thirds. They laughed a little louder than usual. It sounded fun. When they left, my Dad tasted the syrup and discovered why it was such a great hit. It had fermented and turned into wine.

Happy ladies, good ice cream and superb syrup. Embarrassed mom. Happy memories.

Can't wait for the chokecherry bushes to get here.
