Sandhill Plums http://hppr.org en Sandhill Plums are a Jelly Favorite http://hppr.org/post/sandhill-plums-are-jelly-favorite <p>This wonderful native shrub has a deeply history, as it provided a rare and welcome fruit for North American Indian tribes as well as early day settlers.&nbsp; The roots of this manna of the plains literally run deep, searching out subsoil moisture and giving the little shrubs an ability to survive our infamous prairie winds.&nbsp; Today the scarlet fruits are still a favorite for jelly, and are the basis for providing a product for many small-scale&nbsp; local businesses on the High Plains.</p> Thu, 27 Sep 2012 05:01:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 6331 at http://hppr.org Sandhill Plums are a Jelly Favorite
