Used to be chokecherries back in Sidney, MT. We would go down to the river where they grew wild usually
three families, my mother & her two sisters. We would fill a galvanized round washtub set in the trunk of the
car and numberous buckets with these as well as ourselves. Mom would make chokecherry jam, jelly and syrup
and wine when we got home. These goodies were great on her homemade bread and pancakes for the
rest of the year. Been a while since I remembered those days. Thank you for sharing. Here in Missoula there
are wild huckleberries that go great on homemade ice cream, but it has been a while since I have had those.
