I've already made blackberry jelly, which was supposed to be syrup, but it set up a bit too well. And I made Mountain Ash berry jelly, which is disgusting. Ever since I heard you could make jelly out of mountain ash, I've wanted to. There's something magical about free food gathered in the forest, and these berries are loaded with vitamin C. Now that I have tried it, I won't do it again. Even with half the recipe made up of sweet crab apples, it is just plain bad. I might try it after 6 months or so to see if it mellows. It does have one thing going for it - it's very pretty.
I don't have a picture of the jelly, but the berries are very pretty too.
This evening I finally got Dakota out on a trail ride, with my sister and her Lakhota.
Hasta. I am off to ride a different horse this morning, in search of some half wild horses in the trees. I know I said I'm not looking for a horse anymore, but it turns out I lied.
