Homemade jelly from mesquite beans, redbud blossoms and anaqua berries? Yes, and it’s delicious! Come to the next meeting of the San Antonio chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT) to learn about the art of native Texas jelly-making. Paul Gates, our speaker for the February 28th meeting, has been making jams and jellies since his teenage years and will share his techniques and recipes utilizing local native plants such as Mexican plum, Blanco crabapple, American beautyberry, elderberry, Brazilian bluewood (condalia), redbud, dewberry, anaqua, mesquite, mustang grape, and, of course, agarita.
