Autumn Olive [Elaeagnus umbellata] Jam




This year I've had a bumper crop of autumn olives.   We have several wild trees and the one across the way is huge and covered with berries.  They're good this year.   Even the dog will strip ripe berries from the lowest branches.  





With all that abundance, I thought you might like a quick list of the lovely jams you can make with these wonderful berries.

Elaeagnus Raspberry Jam [my favorite!]

Once you've made the jam, here's a great recipe for Eric's Jam Bars.  Delish!


And if you're wondering what the heck autumn olives are in the first place, check out this post.
