Berries of the British Hedgerow

Many hedgerow berries are edible or can be made into jams, jellies, wines or other preparations. An 'Autumn jelly' can be made with a mix of fruits (eg blackberries, crab apples, rose hips, rowanberries, haws and elderberries). Rose-hip syrup is simple to make, and has high Vitamin C content. If you're feeling more adventurous, then making some wines for the long winter nights is a very satisfying pastime. This is a guide to the common berries and what can be done with them.
