I used 20oz of Red Currant Jam in a mead and it worked out great.

@blueberry chat / @FB: you gotta get Wild blueberries. They are smaller and pack more of a flavor punch.

Dried Elderberries with dark honey, with a little oak in the back, sweetened just a tad with a little dark honey at the end. WVMJ

I love Siberian Honeyberries but this year I had trouble with my bushes so didn't get but half a pint. Only enough for in a bowl of ice cream, not enough for a mead, maybe next year.

I planted four 1 gallon sized honeyberry bushes this spring & got 3 berries off 2 plants. I didn't expect a single berry for at least another year. I can hardly wait till I have enough berries to make a gallon of wine and/or melomel!
Regards, GF.
