spending time on the country-side is such a pleasure. i already loved it as a child and the older i get, i cherish it even more. it´s so nice to pick apples, pears and what else just right away from the trees.
so last weekend it was time to pick elderberrys as some were already ripe. we decided to make an elderberry-syrup of them, because you can use it for so many delicious meals. first of all we enjoyed the syrup with a smoothie but i´m sure we gonna use it for much more other recipes. what we also love about the elderberrys is not, that they just taste delicious, they are also very healthy, because they contain a lot of vitamine c and empower the body´s defences. so go for it! the time that you can pick the elderberrys is nearly over :)
