“Chokeberries,” as they are sometimes known.
Why is Aronia called “Chokeberry?” To be blunt, they don't taste too great right off the tree.
They are too sour in their raw form and need to be sweetened, which you can often see evidence of in jams and
jellies sold in farmers markets across the Northeast United States.

and best of all for those of us living in the United States, they're very plentiful... In fact, they grow right

a tree in your own backyard? This site will help you identify aronia berries, prepare them for eating, and in
