I have just GOTTA say it... (weeth a heavy fronch accent)

"your mother was a hamster & your father smelled of elderberries" ;)

I've been gathering about 10 quarts (2 5-quart ice cream buckets) of blackberries every day for the past week now

have you tried using a pillowcase? that's how I learned to take out the seeds when I made jam, now I use an electric juicer

Update...

He brought the 5gal bucket, only half full. My aunt apparently didn't know what she was looking at, and he got over there only to find a row of wild cherry trees. Even with the half full bucket, it took 2.5 hours to de-stem all the berries, and I don't have enough to make the jam, or jelly for that matter. I'm not terribly interested in repeating this process again, so I think I'll use what I have to make some liquor or syrup. I'm more interested in elderberries for their medicinal rather than culinary virtues.
aawww, sorry to hear about that, OFM... :cry:

there are so many berries here that I might go out again
