Thread Name: Elderflower Champagne
Subject: RE: Elderflower Champagne
I used to collect elderberries with my grandma every year, when I was a boy. She used to make jam and juice from them which we had to drink hot in winter when having caught a cold or the flu (lot of vitamin C in it).
She also told me another interesting "fact": in every eldertree there lives a witch. That's why the elder is so strong against certain diseases.
