Good deal, Floyd!

Elderflower tea is great when you have a cold, a cough, or the flu.

You can also use the flowers to make a sparkling "cider"!

I like to dip them in batter and fry them for a tastey breakfast "pancake" or after dinner dessert.

All in moderation, of course....

Here's an informative pdf on Sambucus canadensis:
