Elaeagnus Ripening

The autumn olive berries are starting to turn red.   It'll be a bumper crop year and the birds are already stripping some of the trees, which I totally don't get because those things are seriously puckery.   I wait until they turn red and start getting soft before I harvest.  

I'm trying to decide what to make with them this year.   More jam for sure, but maybe a mixed jam, too?   Elaeagnus strawberry?   1 part elaeagnus to 3 parts strawberry....  or peach?   Or blueberry?   Or elderberry?    Hmmmmm.
