I discovered Autumn Olive Berries by accident. Bought a couple of bushes from One Green World on line.
Turns out they also grow wild in Virginia. I have a bright red and bright yellow bush/tree. To my delight, the deer, bugs, birds, etc. also take no interest in these bushes and berries!
After a few years they were loaded with berries so as an experiment I made a jame out of them. I used the same recipe as other fruit jam except I ran the berries through a food sieve to extract the skin and large seed. Then with each pint of pulp I put in at least one large or two medium Jalepeno peppers seeded and minced fine.
The resulting jam is amazingly good! My mother hoards her Autumn Olive Berry Jam to put on hotdogs instead of catsup, or on omlets, toast, chicken or fish. YUM!
