Found growing mainly in the temperate regions of Europe, North America, western Asia and northern Africa, elderberry can be identified by its delicate white flowers and the pleasant fragrance they produce. Elder trees have been valued and respected by numerous cultures throughout history. In European folklore, it was often believed that elder trees protected houses they grew near. The berries have been harvested for centuries, becoming a key ingredient in food, wine, and natural dye. Although the raw berries are often too bitter for eating, cooking them releases natural sugars that make them much more palatable. This makes them perfect for herbal tea, which produces heat that allows the full, sweet flavor of these berries to be enjoyed.
