Jam from Juneberry


The recipe today is a little bit more special, because you can not buy the juneberry so easy. One or the other may have seen this shrub in the garden and seen the fruits. We also became aware after a few years, that the fruits are edible. My parents have the juneberry in the garden for a long time, but so far only the birds have eaten it.

The picking is a bit difficult because the fruits are not all ripe at the same time and you have to look carefully. In addition, the juneberries are only as big as blueberries. But it’s worth it, if they would stand in the garden anyway and fall off. You just have to see if the birds have discovered the shrub, then you should quickly protect the fruits with a net, otherwise nothing is left.

The juneberrie belongs to the pome fruit plants. The seeds contain hydrocyanic acid, so you should not eat them raw. It is easy to get gastrointestinal discomfort from eating large quantities of raw juneberries or chewed seeds. But processed as jam you get no problems with it.
