the elderberries are ready to harvest

all the elderflowers you did not pick off in spring to enjoy elderflower pancake, elderflower syrup or other delicious things you can create with them, have turned into nice elderberries and are ready to harvest now. you simply have to be faster than the birds, as they love them, too.

but unlike the birds we can eat them only cooked, otherwise they are toxic. you can make some compote, jelly, syrup or ice cream out of them.

if you don´t know where to find the next elderberry bush you simply have to open your eyes, you will find them in parks or roadsides. they hang in umbels, shining nicely blue-violet.
