Skunk currant

Latin Name: 
Ribes glandulosum

Flowers are in elongated clusters of 6-15 pink flowers. Fruits are red and egg-shaped, sometimes palatable but sometimes not.

The Ojibwa people take a compound decoction of the root for back pain and for "female weakness."[7] The Cree people use a decoction of the stem, either by itself or mixed with wild red raspberry, to prevent clotting after birth. [8] The Algonquin people use the berries as food.[9]
