Wild High-bush Cranberry Jelly – New School

Back in mid-September we were picking high-bush cranberries, as you may recall. We could have easily picked 10 times the amount, but I’ve become cautious about overdoing anything in the fall, as I tend to get over-ambitious, then get seriously tired of all the foraging, garden harvest, hunting, butchering, cleaning, packing, freezing, etc. I’m starting to choose my battles. But I made the wrong call on this one. Maryann commented on the post

    Don’t forget those other wild foods you enjoy which rely on the berries as a huge part of their food source. Their habitats are disappearing to accommodate our lifestyles. From what’s left we should only take a little. Even native people do not take huge amounts.

  2. S – agreed. It’s a good point re: wild food as a real source of food for people. I think there’s a place for wild foods being farmed, but think we’re a long way off from that yet.
