Dried Elderberries 8 oz


Sambucus nigra. Native to the British Isles, the small dark colored elderberry makes an excellent "port" style wine. The appearance of berries on the bushes is said to have signaled farmers when to sow their wheat. The berries are also reputed to have been used to make one of the first black hair dyes in ancient Greece.

Elderberries are rich in anti-oxidents, so make an elderberry tea when you feel yourself getting sick!

Dried elderberries are great for adding to beer, wine, or mead.
