Mother of hens and horses!

Did very good today. Got my winter stock just about taken care of. Tomorrow I will be drying, frying, and canning my hearts content. Slip season is going to rock and now that I broke down and went to this smart phone thing I will be on more often. Got some recipes I need to post. Good luck.

Nice find!

I have today off and really want to get into the woods but the hunters are thick! I might stick to the less traveled road edges and pick autumn berries and check out the roadside oaks.

I do need to get to the neighbor's and pick the hens I found the other day.

Autumnberries... aka Autumn Olive. An invasive DNR plant. You probably know them by the name Autumn Olive. They changed it to Autumnberry to make it more attractive.

Re: Mother of hens and horses!

Flooding for what? Cranberries? Or do you mean the Autumn olives are everywhere?

The Autumn Olives are very nutritious. They have 17 times the lycopene as tomatoes.

I found 5 more hens today and 2 stumps. Someone has been picking MY hens. Don't they know I don't share? I'm a hen hog. lol

We picked a few gallons of Autumn berries before giving that up to look for hens. Maybe we should have gone after the hens first because those stumps were very fresh. Funny thing is I found one a few trees up the road from a stump and 4 of them on an old oak at the parking place. They were very obvious too. The biggest weighs 6.9 ounces without the stump and the really dirty parts.

Gotta get those guys cleaned and on the dehydrator now.

They taste like pomegranates. I like them a lot more than elderberries.

Each bush tastes different. I walk and look at each bush until I find one that is so loaded it's drooping. The bigger and softer the berry the easier the picking.

BTW I took a frozen hen out of the freezer and put it on the dehydrator to see what would happen. It's a nasty black mess.

I have not had that experience Doreen. I fresh freeze hens all the time and they thaw out the same as they go in. I have never froze one whole but I don't see what the difference would be.
