When most people think of elderberries, more often than not they think of jams, jellies and pies, even wine. Early records indicate consumption of the berries date back to ancient Greece. Texts from that period record that the berry was thought to be effective in boosting the respiratory and immune systems. On this continent, early North American pioneers prized the elderberry for its ability to ease maladies such as the common cold. We prize the elderberry for its ability to flavor Ceylon tea with an intense berry character. Delicious when served piping hot, this tea is also divine over ice.
