Pyracantha recipes

scenterFebruary 20, 2007

I googled pyracantha, and found out that you can make wine and jelly from the berries!

here are some of the links:

(wine)

So, the next question is: What else can you make from them?

pies? ice-cream/sorbet? etc.

Has anybody tried something like that?

I've made pyracantha jelly. It tastes like a fruity apply and is rose in color. Pies might be a problem because of the tough seeds, and the texture is quite mealy. By all means experiement but I would think things made from the juice (or extracted flavors) would be more appealing than things made from the pulp.
