    Looks like a spicebush. If so, you're lucky. I wouldn't eat them as fruit but good for flavoring other things, beer, wines, culinary dishes etc.

    Hopeful H, I've just looked up spicebush and it seems to have longer fruit and possibly different shaped leaves...but I'm leaving my options openimage
