Organic Dried Elderberries
Sambucus nigra, the botanical name of the plant that produces elderberries, is a large deciduous shrub that bears dark black berries. Sambucus nigra hails from Europe, and also originates from southwest Asia and northwest Africa. Other common names for Sambucus nigra include Black Elder, European Elder, Common Elder, Black-berried European Elder, Boor Tree and German Elder. The plant produces flowers in the summer, and the fruit comes on in the late fall months of the year. The small dark berries hang in clusters off the large shrub, and are attractive to birds who flock to the plants for late season food.
Humans also enjoy elderberries, and often use them cooked in pies and jams, as well as in syrup, tea, and elderberry wine. The berries have even been used in times past as a dye.
