Short Description:
Although watermelon berries are common in Alaska along the coast in Southeast, in the central Yukon River area and in damp, wooded areas of the Interior, many Alaskans may be unfamiliar with this juicy, flavorful fruit. This publication tells how to identify the plants and provides information on cleaning and storing fresh berries, extracting juice, and freezing and drying berries for long-term storage. There are also recipes for making syrup and jelly and general instructions for canning.
