Mayhaw Jelly

Mayhaw Jelly is a rare delicacy made from the tart red berry that grows in the swamps and bogs of Southwest Georgia. Colquitt, in Miller County, Georgia, is the center of the Mayhaw growing area. Mayhaw trees grow wild in such a small geographical area that the berries are highly prized and the tart sweet jelly hoarded for special occasions. Mayhaws are called berries, but technically they are members of the haw or apple family. In May the red berries are gathered by hand or scooped out of the water in fishnets. The berries are boiled, then squeezed, to get clear coral colored juice that is made into. the best jelly in the world?.
