Freezer Choke Cherry Jelly
A client wants a recipe for freezer choke cherry jelly, and she would like to know if she can use the same recipe for choke cherry jelly as blackberry jelly and instead of processing it in jars can she just freeze it?

Chokecherry fruits are popular in making jelly. Any recipe that
calls for sour cherry or elderberry jelly can be substituted with
chokecherry fruit. A mixture of half chokecherry juice and half
apple or red currant juice also makes a tasty product. Red currant
juice does not influence the chokecherry flavor as does apple juice.
You can try substituting the chokecherries in a berry recipe that is made for freezer jelly. However, I do not recommend trying to use a cooked jelly recipe to make a freezer jelly. You will have poor results without the cooking process.
