Ingredients

  • Go berry picking for chokecherries.

Directions

Rinse berries
(you can pound them a little or leave whole)
Cook a little bit
Eat, seeds and all

Note: July is known to many Natives as 'the month when the cherries turn black'

*** NativeTech Note *** Autumn and wilted leaves and pits of fruits contain hydrocyanic acid. Do not eat the raw pits! Elias & Dykeman's 1982 Field Guide to N. Amer. Edible Wild Plants states "Indians ground whole fruits, leached poison from seeds, formed pulp into cakes, and dried them in the sun for sauce and pemmican".
