Me, too. I have three elderberry shrubs, and still haven't tasted any part of them yet... // [In reply to] Can't Post

Elderberry Pie [In reply to] Can't Post

Homemade elderberry pie is one of those 'love it or hate it' deals. It isn't for someone who is bothered by getting small seeds in their teeth though.

Actually it very wasn't. :P [In reply to] Can't Post

It was at the Viaduct - I don't think they can do rustic even ironically. Wink

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Okay... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not gonna get gross, but I have smelled worse things than skunk. Pirate

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhúr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Műmak. But we got him!

I made a cough syrup from elderberries [In reply to] Can't Post

and it was very soothing, certainly did the trick - contained cloves too, I think - but as it contained a lethal amount of sugar I didn't make it again! Elderflower fritters made with a light batter are apparently very tasty, though I haven't tried them.

Never had that, but I've used salve made from the roots by the older generations. [In reply to] Can't Post

I like elderberry jelly/jam, but have to buy it at country markets.The local wildlife got what little bit of fruit my native shrubs produced so far (and some of the flowers, too), so I'll have to start with the flowers this year and break some recipes down to smaller portions until I can get a bigger crop. The first blossoms started opening yesterday...

Interesting - I hadn't heard of that one! [In reply to] Can't Post

I did make a small set of pan pipes from the stems once. Very whispery, but soulful.

I used to work in a hospital [In reply to] Can't Post

The point is, trying to describe a taste or smell that's not like anything else to someone who hasn't encountered it is . . . problematic.

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around … The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.

true enough. Sometimes words fail.
