It was our family's turn to host the church coffee hour last Sunday and I brought wild breakfast treats -- acorn mini donuts (powdered and cinnamon sugar) and elderberry grape juice.  I've brought elderberry lemonade before and that's always a hit, and the elderberry grape juice was this time, too.  One lady told me if I ever decide to sell the stuff, she wants to buy me out.  :)  

Here's the recipe for the elderberry grape juice:

Mix in a gallon ice tea jar: 1 quart of grape juice (from back yard purple grapes but you could use store bought), 2 quarts elderberry juice, about 1/2 cup organic lemon juice and sugar to taste.

I have the acorn mini donut recipe on my author blog here and it's also in my acorn foraging book.  They were all gobbled up, so I guess they were a hit.  :)  The elderberry grape juice recipe isn't in my elderberry foraging book, but there are 70+ other recipes.  I just keep coming up with more ways that I love to use them.  

The elderberries and acorns were foraged and the grapes were from my in-laws' back yard.  It was fun to feed a crowd with our wild bounty and show them how good it can taste!

Yum!  Elderberries are a good idea in the winter time, for their antiviral properties.

I've never had acorn flour, but I'm curious.  Thanks for sharing!
