Berberis vulgaris


On the left is a small wood bowl of dried barberries and in the gally pot on the right, preserved barberries.  Berberis vulgaris grows in the wild in much of Europe and West Asia. It produces large crops of edible berries with sharp acid flavor. In Europe for many centuries the berries were used for culinary purposes,  My preserved barberries were used for an 18th century receipt (recipe)-Barberry Ice Cream.
