I would like to harvest a good amount this year- never have, so this will be the first. When should I start looking for them? How/where do I spot them if looking in the state parks? Is there a way to cultivate them into the home garden/yard? What would be the best way to preserve besides making a tincture for flu/cold season? I am thinking elderberry wine is a MUST (tons of recipes out there) but would also like to hear about some tried and true yummy ways to preserve them. Would also like to ask if anyone has a reliable deliecious wine recipe they could share here. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and share your tried and true recipes. I am making myself a "field" notebook on all the wilds and herbs in our area and including how to use them.Elderberry is in my top 3 MUST try's for this year. Cheers!
