    I have a vague recollection of it not that you mention it! Sounds delicious. Makes me want to go find some before I make dinner!

    It's been a while since I revived this thread. I guess I should have done that weeks ago, when I first started this series of projects. Some for the FF website, and some for another big publication I am working on. These are some of the shots I have taken in a field with a large concentration of Passiflora Incarnata, North American Passion Fruit, I have been working in. Sorry I can't share the detailed shots, I think those are pretty cool. Some of you will see those in the other project, later when it publishes. The fruit isn't ripe yet, I just wanted to share some Fiddleback-Centric images of the flowers in bloom as a PSA for some who may be allergic to bees. The meme going around face book isn't a joke or a hoax as far as I've seen with my own eyes. In times of bad weather, when they can't fly I suppose, I've seen where bees will cuddle up together on flowers and go to sleep.

    Maybe a little :) . Roses are in the apple family, the rose hips, honey, and butter go well together when you get it right. They are also used in making chew-able vitamin C tablets which were my favorites when I was a kid.

    I first started ate some if Dallas in 1978. After reading the ingredients on my vitamins lol. Then years later a survival mentor made a glaze like I want to make to put on some fresh caught fish he had cooked. I have been wanting to do this for years, but the last several years also cost me several delays...
