Beautyberries well deserve their name with their iridescent-purple fruit arriving early Autumn. Pretty purple berries. This is a bland sweet jelly on it's own. But with the addition of shiso giving both more color and a very light herbal taste. Native American's used root and leaf tea in sweat baths for rheumatism, fevers, and malaria. Root tea used for dysentery, stomach aches. Root and berry tea used for colic. Pretty to be served at a Bridal Shower Brunch.
