A delicious condiment courtesy of TipNut. Pick only the ripe berries that are vivid red and slightly soft. They have a much better flavor if picked after the first frost…preferably late August, September or October. You can harvest them from your garden, but they’re more plentiful from old-time shrub varieties such as rugosas and wild rose bushes. Not sure about the yield.
