That's why "Honeyberry" is such a poor name.  People expect a sweet 
fruit, when it's quite acid.  Get a quart of them and make a pie.  Use 
a standard blueberry pie recipe with top and bottom crust.  Eaten warm, 
the pie surpasses  all fruit  for aroma and complexity of flavor.

I had my first taste of honeyberry this year. They were of the variety
"Blue Moon".  I tasted them when they became blue - very sour.  I waited
and let them sit for another week or so, just until they became a bit
less turgid. Tasted again: much sweeter, not delicious, but OK fresh.
And early, I agree about the timing - it is a gift to have berries in
early May.
