Crataegus monogyna
Crataegus monogyna
The haws of the hawthorn are edible, and are frequently made into jellies or syrups to flavour other things like fruit dishes or wines. They were also used in a variety of traditional medicines for heart conditions.

Haws have a single seed, and are technically "pomes" rather than berries. Like an apple, the edible surround to the fruit is formed by the swelling of the base of the original bud.
