Elderberry Harvest

We picked elderberries yesterday. These things are very easy to pick, as they produce in large clusters of berries that one just cuts off with a nippers.

Then the fun begins. The berries are very small – about BB size – and they are scraped off the clusters with a fork. And while wearing rubber gloves, because everything they touch is immediately stained purple. We still have a few stems to pick out yet.

Elderberries

Now what? Three recipes to try – elderberry liqueur, elderberry jelly, and elderberry syrup.
