American Beauty-berry bush
Anyone ever eaten these berries or done anything with them?

I just downloaded this app called “picture this” and been scanning every plant/tree out at my place haha. Anyway I got a ton of these Beauty-berries out here. The app says they’re edible, but I dunno if they’re worth it or not.

shite those are edible? I seem all the time in the woods. Growing up I was told they are poisonous but I just did a search and people make jam out of them.

They are supposed to make a good jelly.. I haven't tried it. Ive also heard not to eat too many fresh they can make you sick.. but I'm not expert on it..

I dunno about eating, but the leaves work as an insect repellent when you are in a pinch.

I was reading about that too. Might have to keep some of these plants around after all

A guy back home makes jelly out of them. It’s similar to mayhaws and way more plentiful.

You can make jelly out of the berries, and soak the leaves for natural mosquito repellent

All I know is deer will smoke the dog shite out of them. Put a bow stand near them and wait. And also heard if you crush the leaves and rub it on your skin, it will repel skeeters.
