I did find that cooking them seemed to do away with that, making them much more palatable. I made a jelly from them that had a tart flavor like cranberries. It was enjoyable. I have also continued to try at least one small handful every year. I suppose I’m a diehard optimist. Amazingly the flavor has grown on me. I seem to enjoy them a bit more each year.
