Does Anybody Have Their Grandma’s Recipe For This?
CHOKE CHERRY JAM?
Yes. Choke Cherry Jam! My Co-Worker makes Choke Cherry Jam and I begged him to sell me some; lucky for me, he kindly shared some of his 2019 supply and didn't charge me a thing.
My Grandmother Laura, We called her Gramma Grow, was amazing in the kitchen. One of my fondest memories was of her baking; breads, tarts, trilbies cookies, and her amazing jelly.
I remember her creations as Choke Cherry Jelly and Thorn Apple Jelly. I think she preferred Jellies over jams. I remember her making tarts, and she would alternate a teaspoon of Choke Cherry and Thorn Apple jelly for in each one she put out at holidays. She was also our baby sitter; so if there was extra; my cousins and I were lucky enough to sample them.
The thing is; probably like so many of your Grandma's; she really didn't use a 'recipe' for anything. She put in a little bit of this; a little bit of that. I don't remember her ever really sharing a lot of her recipes. I'm sure she never really thought there would come a time when she couldn't make them for us.
