This first batch we picked has gone to the freezer.
The second bag we picked I’m drying in the oven now. I set it at 170F, and have been drying for few hours. I turned it off this morning when we left to go somewhere and left them in the warm oven drying. Now I turned the oven back on again and hope they’ll be dry soon. (It’s hot today…)
I’m hoping we’ll get to pick a little more elderberries because we use them a lot during the winter and I’d like to share them with my mom for their winter.
And even the stems are so pretty after we’ve picked the berries. Isn’t it?
