Spanish for chokecherry, Capulín is named for the bushes that grow in the area. They are very tart and very tiny berries.
My mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law each have a few in their yards and can crank out the chokecherry jelly like nobody’s business.
I had not ever tried Chokecherry Jelly before meeting my husband. Now, I can’t think of life without it!
The growing season is very short here. That means it will be a few months before we see any chokecherries but you can bet they will be harvested in the fall and made into the best jelly in the world.
