Chokecherry Liqueur

I used to love my Grandma's chokecherry jam. When my dad planted chokecherry bushes in our backyard, I was so excited I could scream (or should i say choke?) Those things were NOT meant to be eaten raw. I loved them in jam, and Aunt Bea has a great liqueur recipe to use these unfriendly berries in as well.

Recipe Notes

We made a lot of things from Chokecherries, but then again, we made a lot of things into liqueur (or wine!) so this combo isn’t too bad!
