Who is familiar with this tree/shrub?
Yes – it’s elderberry.
Now is time to gather it and dry it for tea. You have to dry it in dark and ventilated space. It drys pretty quick and when you mix it with line/linden blossom, balm-mint and peppermint you get great homemade tea.
Another thing you shouldn’t miss out on:
You make the same type of batter as for pancakes and then you sprinkle freshly gathered elder blossoms on top of it. If you have sweet tooth you can add sugar, I personally try to avoid it.
Bon appetite, dear readers!
