Beautyberries are not only beautiful, they provide lots of winter food for birds.

Thanks everyone for all the acorns and thumbs. @Greene Mary, I don't know if I'll get around to making the jelly, but your jelly recipe gives me one more reason to love these gorgeous berries.

@rocklady
If you don't plan to use all the berries, you might make a post on your local FreeCycle pages and offer to a local jelly maker (then barter to get a jar of jelly!).

@Greene Great tip. Thanks so much for it. I have been known to do some things once, just for the pleasure of knowing I can do it!

Thanks so much Tina. When we inherited my brother's home in FL, I was thrilled to find lots of beautyberry bushes on the property! To me, it was comparable to finding buried treasure!
