The elderberry. I have not ever really grown these but I would love too. They actually fascinate me. This plant had literally been around for hundreds of years. I think maybe it originated in Europe. I am not exactley sure, but what a great find.

Anything that has been around for so long i am willing to give a try too. Some of the benefits are increasing your immune system. They are said to fight colds, and flu symptoms. They are filled with antioxidants and are heart healthy. There are many more benefits, but I can't list them all. We probably don't even know them all.

There is always bad with the good. The branches, bark and leaves are said to be toxic. This being said, know what you are doing, or pay the price.

With it being the unwell time of year, it doesn't hurt to be a little prepared. I have made these and bought these.

Elderberry popsicles...

This the recipe I used when my daughter Livvy had her tonsils. This an amazing plant with so many benefits.

Sort:  

Many benefts...
Out of the flowers you make syrup.
Out of the berries you can make syrup and marmelade.
If the berries are still green you can.poison someone.

They grow here like weeds.

Happy day and weekend 💕

That is cool they grow so well there. Poison can be an added benefit too. Lol

😍 Elderberry - what a great ode to Elderberry!! Wouldn't it be awesome to have a permaculture property with all the berries and fruit etc. 💓

nice article.
elderberry wine is lovely , as is the jam/jelly. a cordial can be made like a red lemonade also.
high in anti oxidants and the neural chemical derived from the dye ,anthocyanins.
