This post is going to be quick, because I am pressed for time today. A hamster in a wheel, I am... a hamster in a wheel.
One of these days, I would like to actually harvest and dry elderberries. I make syrup every few weeks this time of year, because it's good for your immune system. But I always just buy the dried berries at the food co-op.
So yes. Note to self! Remember to do this next year. There are definitely good spots around here for accessing them.
Oh, and for those of you not in the know about them: never, ever, ever eat them off the tree. Never, ever, ever eat the skins and seeds. Cook them down, then strain them. Then, add honey.
I'll post a recipe for this later if people are interested.
