I found out what my mystery berries are from a brother visiting from
Tennessee, polkberries. I had searched online and through my books for
hours without finding it. He told a story about how an elderly lady he
knows uses the berries to help her arthritis. Five berries a day,
freezing them for later. Further research warned they are poisonous.
Anyone eat the greens? My shrub is huge, about ten feet in diameter with
bushels of fruit. I also found they were used as ink and our consitution
was written with it. Anyone have a recipe?
