Depending on where you are in the US, the menu is pretty nice. You can enjoy berries and berry-like fruits such as wild grapes, autumn olive berries, elderberries, wintergreen berries, rose hips, cranberries, chokecherries and hawthorn fruit, to name just a few. And a lot of them can be eaten right off the bush. A good field guide will tell you which berries taste better after drying or cooking. You can even turn them into jam, jelly, wine, tea, barbeque sauce and whatever else you can dream up.
