    Thank you very much Laura735! Berries and leaves visually match photos on both links. I will check a bit further before trying a single berry test. I love to eat outside.

    Check out false Solomon’s seal (Maianthemum racemosum syn. Smilacina racemosa) and see if you have a match. Link below with more information on M. racemosum being edible. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maianthemum_racemosum
