Making Rowan Jelly
Well, Rowans are collected from the local trees ..., and then you try to get all the small leaves and other bits separated out. Put the clean berries into a pot and cover them with fresh highland water. Boil the berries up and then drain it all through a muslin strainer into a big pot. Add about one pound of sugar for each pint of liquid, plus the juice of a few lemons, boil all this up and decant into clean sterilised jam jars.... The result could and should be rather interesting!
