Chokecherry Festival

quilts

Chokecherry Festival is held every year here in Lewistown right after Labor Day. It was a very chilly day as you can see from the pictures. Here I am (in the red jacket) buying corn on the cob.

Here I am again with Sam (blue jacket) at a quilting vendor of course – this lady is from a neighboring town where there is a quilt store that Sam didn’t know about — by neighboring town out here does not mean right down the road away – this one is about 40 or 50 miles from here.

The main drag of Lewistown during the festival

I met this lady that we are talking to on Thursday at the quilting group, I think her name is Gloria but not positive on that, that is Sam with me again although it was getting chiller and she had her hood up so you can’t really see her this time.

And this morning we woke up to see snow on the Snowy Mts. that you can off in the distance from here, they are probably about 40 miles away.

    I’m looking for recipes using chokecherries (other that jam, jelly or wine recipes). Do you know of any or maybe a collection of chokecherry recipes. If in a cookbook, I’d be willing to buy it. Thanks.
