Fruit of the season

At this point in the season we see a lot of fruit, some good, some not , and some kind of indifferent, like this. These smooth honeysuckle berries are eaten by wildlife, but not much by humans these days. Indians used to mix them with other stuff, including meat, and dry the result in strips for winter use. A winter in the UP in those days probably would get you to eat some pemmican.
