Aronia Berries

When we heard nutritionists promoting aronia berries as the next greatest health food, high in antioxidants, three times greater than blueberries, we planted a bush. After six years we finally got enough to harvest — about 3 gallons of berries.

They are native to Iowa and were called “chokeberries” before the marketers and “health nuts” started promoting their healthy attributes. Not great by themselves, but my daughter mixes them with other berries in her baking — delicious!

Thought for the Day:
Ridin’ along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin’ wild
Cruisin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go

Chuck Berry

  1. And I thought I had never heard of Aronia berries until I read on. My mother used to make coke cherry pies and I’d think it would patience to pit them. Harriet
