I finally broke open a jar of Elderberry Jelly yesterday. When I had made it I thought I was going to be stuck with jars of Elderberry syrup. I put the jars into the cupboard with hopes that given a little time it would set up. Turns out it’s perfect and delicious.
With cooler weather here and the wood stove going it’s also time to start making bread once again. I had high hopes of making it all of the time but found that I was throwing away a lot of it during the summer because it would mold before it was half gone. Another reason to love the cooler weather.
I also hear that eating Elderberry jelly or syrup daily helps ward off colds and flu. I’m feeling some sniffles coming on.
