Elderberry is a prolific fruiting shrub or small tree, growing 12-15' tall. Flowers and fruit appear simultaneously throughout the spring and summer. The white flower clusters can be made into elderflower fritters. Just pick entire flower clusters, dip in batter, and fry. Dried flowers can also be made into a tea. Fruit is a dark purple-black color when ripe. The fruit can be eaten dried, or cooked into jams, jellies, pies, or wine. The fruit is not only good, it is good for you. Elderberries contain more vitamin C per unit weight than oranges.
