Does anyone have a good jelly recipe (Hector maybe?)  for cornus mas.  
In particular Im wondering if their is any kind of prep I need to do to 
slake the astringency from the fruit.  Also Im keen on finding a 
version that is eastern european in origin.  We've been searching 
romanian sites & find a number of manufacturers for cornul jelly but so 
far no old family recipes. We had a great year & the birds so far seem 
not to like them.  I was shocked to visit the Olbrich Gardens arboretum 
in Madison WI a month ago or so & see that they had 25 year old trees 
lining a long walkway, planted as a very high hedge.  They were loaded, 
there had to be 100s of lbs of fruit hanging & I'd be willing to bet no 
one does anything with them.  ~mIEKAL
