Description

Organically sourced – Origin: Croatia

Elder is a plant native to most of Europe, North America, and southwest Asia. A perennial shrub that can be found growing along hedgerows, forest perimeters, and in gardens.  For centuries, elderberries have been used to make preserves, wines, cordials, herbal infusions,  elderberry syrup. They are noted for not only adding flavor, but color and antioxidants. The dried fruits are less bitter than the fresh. Although the branches and leaves are poisonous, the small stem which is sometimes left on the berry is safe.
