No recipes, just a caution. Most sea buckthorn comes from dry climates, so
if you plant some, put them in well drained, loose soil. If needed, put
them in raised beds. I planted some here in Oregon and most fizzled out in
a few years.

At the urging of Russian friends I planted sea buckthorn a few years ago,
first crop of berries this year. After picking a few amid the thorns, I cut
branches and froze them, and the berries shucked off easier, but still slow.
Used a Foley's mill to extract juice, diluted and sweetened per recipe in
"One Green World" catalog (1 cup juice, 2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar or
honey). Juice is pretty and tasty (I diluted further after tasting).
Anyone have other uses for the berries? An Armenian friend says he made
excellent wine in the old country, but lost the recipe.
