two years since we last preserved these tasty fruits. It has been a great year for all sorts of berries and the tiny elders are no exception. Saturday, David trekked to the bush - and brought home lots of snipped clusters.
We spent all afternoon removing the tiny berries from the tender vines and sorting them into 2 pound bags. In the end, there were 17 pounds of fruit. I stored 4 pounds in the fridge for Sunday and put the other 13 into the freezer for this winter.
After breakfast on Sunday, I transferred the fruit into elderberry syrup (recipe on my RecipeBoxMemory Blog).
