Has anyone tried making food from Hawthorne Berries as shown on one of Ray Mears programmes. (They're being repeated at the moment I think).
I collected some today and tried it. At first I tried mashing them with the potato masher but it wasn't working very well so got stuck in with my hands as Ray had done on the programme.
(Didn't tell me I'd end up with orange hands did he ) I then forced it through a sive to get out the juice and let it set in a bowl. After about half an hour it had set into a jelly form and I turned it out onto a plate. I sliced it up and it's now drying on the kitchen table. Ray sugested sun drying but it's trying to rain so may take longer befor it's ready to try. Hope it's and not . Ray said the taste was the nearest thing to sweets you could get, we'll see. (Wonder if the wife will try it first)
