Black crowberry are commonly described as having an "uninteresting" taste, but don't believe a word of it. A tribute to this misunderstood fruit: black crowberry identification, when to pick it, some tasting notes and a recipe to boot.
This year I decided to preserve my favorite native fruit by making cordial, shrub, and drunken berries. These recipes can also be made with blueberries or other fruits. There's a berry kamikaze cocktail recipe too!
