Harvesting and processing Autumn Olives, Eleagnus Umbellata
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXu2RN4Gz4o&feature=related
many more videos on this page about this fruit, its uses as food and
in permaculture.

I noticed that there is an "invasive species" issue with this plant.
I think this is an extremely valuable wild plant. Its fruit are high in
vitamin C,
have many different uses as food, replacing other fruits that may be out of
season
when you need them or might have to be bought off site, and, according to
PFAF,
is anti carcinogenic.  Plants like this from the wild providing a bounty of
high quality
are valuable and should be conserved.
