From Elderberry wine to immune boosting syrups, the little black berry has been used for just about everything.
I just recently came back across the Elderberry information and am trying to get me a bottle of the juice, the syrup and some cuttings of the plants so I can grow some!
I found Elderberry Life, where you can get bare root plants or cuttings. I’ll try the cuttings first. I am also going to get some of their juice!
One of the things that I am going to try with the Elderberries that I grow, is to make some Elderberry Mead. I think that will be a one-gallon brew for the first try-out. 🙂 I may even use some of the juice from Elderberry Life to make a trial run.
I will try to remember not to eat too many raw berries or the leaves and other parts of the plant (tree?) – that could be bad.
