WILD CHOKECHERRY DESSERT WINE
Ripe chokecherries make excellent jelly and very good wine. The toxic pits should not dissuade you from making and enjoying this wonderful wine. Simply de-stoning the berries will eliminate any potential hazard. Don’t let the tartness of the fruit trick you into over-sweetening the must.
Chokecherry wine is best when dry, but if you simply cannot tolerate dry wine, then sweeten it very sparingly before bottling. The delicate undertones of flavor unique to the chokecherry are easily lost to sugar.
