Jamming with Japanese Wineberries

In recent years Japanese wineberries have become very prevalent in our area.  These plants are considered an invasive species and is much maligned by many folks voicing their opinion on the web.  There is no doubt that the wineberries do crowd out some native plants however they do minimize erosion, and produce a tremendous crop of soft mast without the need for any pesticides or herbicides Many species of wildlife take advantage of the profusion of berries each summer.

All I can say about wineberries is if you have them available, go pick a bunch and Jam It!

The end result of those berries looks really good.
