Glenn Coie : Thanks for the link, I 'liked and Followed',

The Idea of freezing the clusters, and then cleaning the berries off of the stem clusters, reminds me that that is my favorite way to gather Several of the local
varieties of crab apple, often there is something that happens within the fruit when it freezes, perhaps there is an enzyme released that markedly increases The
sugar content present in the fruit! It seems to be most pronounced in C'apples that the Slow freezing process has caused large ice crystals to form, and the skin
to split!

I can't wait to Try this on Elderberries ! Big AL !

Elderberry wine is AWESOME. I wish I could make barrels of it.

Elderberry syrup on pancakes is absolutely yummy, too.

I need to plant more elderberries.
Doody calls. I would really rather that it didn't. Comfort me wise and sterile tiny ad:
