I have a big harvest this year, maybe 5 gallons of fruit.  Mine are  
ripening very unevenly so I'm using a tarp & shaking them off trees,  
then laying them out in the sun until they get as ripe as possible.   
The ripest ones seem to be drying a bit but I don't anticipate that  
this is a problem since I want to use the steam juicer to make some  
juice to put up my first batch of cornus mas wine.  Now to figure out  
what yeast will bring out that flavor the best.
