I never knew so many edible berries grew on CMS’s campus! In Natural Expressions class, we gathered three kinds of berries: Staghorn sumac, Autumn Olive, and wild grapes. Our class made jelly from only the berries, water, sugar, and fruit pectin! We also made berry syrup from the berries, water, and sugar! After making the syrups and jellies, we made pancakes from a mix. It was pretty messy 🙂 Then came the best part of all…….We got to eat the pancakes spread with the jam! I thought they were very delicious. I hope we do something like this again soon!
