Transformational Gardening

Disclaimer: Foraging can be fun, rewarding and provide health benefits. As a novice forager, I will be sharing my foraging experiences. However, in order to be safe, always consult with local foraging experts and guidebooks before beginning foraging. Children should learn to forage safely by being guided by experienced adults. Never ingest anything unless you are certain of the identification and safety of the plant. Some plant species are inedible and some are poisonous.

September 10, 2011 Southeastern, New Hampshire I made 2-1/2 pints of Elderberry syrup following the Mountain Rose Herbs video instructions. I used 1/2 cup of honey on the second batch because it is too sweet with 1 cup of honey per 1 cup of fresh elderberries.
