Does anyone else use buffalo berries. I love the jelly. You don't have to use Sure jell. It don't smell too good when you are making it but it sure tastes good when you are done. They are also calle bull berries.
If you don't know what they are, they are a small tree with silvery leaves and red, orange or yellow berries on them. Watch for the thorns. The berries are vey tart and the seeds are soft so you can eat them. About the best way to pick them is to lay a tarp under the tree and wack the tree with a club.

There are many plants called "buffalo berries" in the US... which ones do you mean? Got a botanical name? Are you referring to Shepherdia of some kind? Those grow about everywhere except the Old South.
