In August I harvested chokecherries and made chokecherry liqueur. See how I did it in today's video. Remember to always carefully identify wild edibles. Choke cherry bark, leaves, twigs, stems and pits contain varying levels of a toxin that when digested, converts to cyanide in the stomach causing poisoning. Never crush the cherries as this toxin can be released from the pits. Make products from wild edibles at your own risk.
