Hawthorn Berries

So many hawthorn trees surrounding the field near my house.  All loaded with berries.  I've been picking them, now that they're ripe, and trying to make hawthorn berry jelly.  My first attempt was a flop: great tasting, but I think I got the temp too high because my jelly came out more like taffy.  So I'm trying again later this week with a different recipe this time.  Plenty of berries left for the birds.
