Hawthorn

   

Russian Hawthorn pomes are their most
appealing through December, then begin to
blacken into raisins or fall from the branches.
After they've been through a few frosts,
they cease to be intolerably bitter &
come close to being tasty fresh from the branches,
though best prepared as a spicy hawthorn sauce
similar to cranberry.

See also the pages showing Autumn Hawberry Portraits
& the Hawthorn's Winter Bark.

And read more about this shrub on the main
Crataeagus ambigua page.
