We are in the process of harvesting and processing our elderberries.
We have been lazy this year, the birds have gotten a lot.
Rolf is very fond of making this Swabian dish out of them, basically just the berries stirred into a roux, with sugar. I don't really like it, at all.
I have been making syrup. The stuff at the health food store is $10 for about 6oz- making my own feels like a great choice.
It is a lot of work for this tiny payoff. We also put a lot of berries into the freezer, so if I feel more ambitious later I can make more.
We used some of the syrup to make homemade sodas, man was that ever good! poured over crushed ice, with charged water & lemon!
