We went to pick elderberries the other day, because they were ready.
I’ve always bought it dry,in small amounts, and without a food dryer I wasn’t sure how I should keep them.
A friend freezes them. So I did that. A few bags in the freezer. I put them in a cookie sheet for a little bit, and then put them in a bag. Just like blueberries.
And the rest, I died them in the oven.
I put them in two cookie sheets, at 170 degrees (F), for about 11-12 hours.
And had lots of stems like these at the end.
And now, we are ready for winter… at least with the elderberries ready!
