I made jam this past weekend from fresh picked salmonberries. It was the most amazing thing ever. My uncle used to make raspberry jam but the salmonberry jam blew it out of the water. Wild berries are so amazing, my uncle used to grow the raspberries on a ledge in Clifton NJ. LOL! We also made blueberry jam that was outrageous too, but the salmonberry takes the cake! For anyone who has never done it before and loves jam, it is so easy!! You should definately try it!

It is a cousin to the raspberry. It apparently is very abundant here. It looks just like a raspberry but a tad bit more orange. It has a super similiar taste to the raspberry maybe a tad more tart. Raspberry is my all time favorite, this berry I love equally as much. First time I had it about a week ago. If you like raspberries you should enjoy salmonberries just as much.

I am experimenting with making an adult beverage out of salmonberries--I'llbe making it into wine and then running it through the still.

In fact--I think this weekend we're going to pick some salmonberries and have daiquiris on the deck

Man I am missing the fun! I never thought of daquiris. I think I might try that too! Let me know how the 'adult beverage' turns out.

The wine should be all right and when it's distilled into brandy it should be even better Will have a few for sure for Ron and Calire.

Give salmonberry coulis a try sometime. It is particularly good over anything chocolate.

Salmonberry Coulis
A pint of fresh salmonberries
juice from half a lemon
2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons of Chambord or Framboise liqueur

Strain the salmonberries through a fine sieve to remove all the seeds. Add the lemon juice, sugar, and raspberry liqueur and mix well. Refrigerate, and serve cold. Makes approximately 1 cup of salmonberry coulis.

The adult beverages turned out really well of course but I think I'm going to try this tonight. I have some cream flavored ice cream I think it would be good on--it's 81 degrees out, pretty rare here in SE.
