May Apple/American Mandrake recipes?

Have a large patch of May Apples (American Mandrake) on my property that should produce plenty of fruit this year and would like to utilize it. Any good recipes out there?

  1. I have heard they make good jam, but I've never been able to collect enough to try it. Most of the time the local wildlife has figured out that the fruit is ripe just before I do. I have also heard that you should be careful not to eat too many of them at once because they can cause, er, intestinal distress. The flavour is intoxicating though, isn't it?
