Hawthorn berries, or haws, have been used for centuries to make jams, jellies and various alcoholic beverages. In Mexico, the fruits are used to make a traditional Christmas punch and rielitos, a confection fashioned in the shape of train rails made from sugar, chili powder and a paste of hawthorn berries, or tejocote.

In addition to candies and toys, the berries are used as filling for piñatas.

Hawthorn is a shrubby bush that is represented by at least 1,000 species in the Crataegus genus, better known as the rose family. C. laevigata is a European species also called English hawthorn, although it is also native to other parts of Europe and Africa as well.

The so-called berries, which are technically known as haws, are completely edible and notably nutritious. A flavorful addition to jams, syrups, baked goods and teas, hawthorn berries are high in bioflavonoids that lend the fruit bright color and strong antioxidant properties.
