Can choke cherries be used to make jelly?

Rating: 6

Choke cherries can be used to make a jelly. Prepare the juice by combining 3-1/2 pounds of cherries and 3 cups of water in a large kettle. Cover and bring to a boil. Cook 15 minutes. Let juice drain through a jelly bag. Follow a recipe for sour cherries that comes with a powdered fruit pectin product.
