I will confess that I had no idea what an elderberry looked like. I have heard of elderberries however, but having grown up in the "city" I've not seen elderberries, blueberries and thimbleberries yes, but not elderberries. Well we found some and have made elderberry syrup and elderberry tincture, both have wonderful health benefits. We also dried some of the berries for later use.
I get so excited when we find things like this and it appears that not many folks around here use the berries for anything, because now that we are aware of the elderberries, we see the bushes all over along the side of the roads here.
