Wild Berry Vinegars and Wild Berry Recipe Swap!

Hello Everyone,
  I am out harvesting all sorts of berries in the PNW now. Here are a few:
Trailing Blackberries, Blackcap Raspberries, Saskatoons, Thimbleberries and many more.

I make a wonderful vinegar out of these by just gathering them into a pint jar and covering with balsamic or apple cider vinegar to use on my salads for the summer.

I am also going to collect Saskatoons soon to dry for winter snacks and pemmican. Do you have any wild berry recipes that are unusual?

Please share! Thanks!

I need to learn how to make my own vinegar. Exciting that you can make them out of berries...I never knew that!

I make yeast from the dried berries ... Vinegars ... In the spring, I add different herbs in vinegars. You can make sweet vinegar with herbs and add to tea ... different sauces.

Delicious vinegar ideas! A few summers ago, some other farm interns and I went wineberry picking in the woods and got several buckets worth. One gal made delicious pie and one guy made wineberry wine, which I never got to try when it was ready, but I bet was delicious. Wineberries are a sort of sticky, deep red raspberry with a slightly different flavor. They are awesome eaten fresh.

Olange - What process do you go through to make yeast from the dried berries?

I think I found it. And few other ideas for making your own yeast, too.
