E is for Elderberry
Elder (Sumbucus) leaves, bark, roots and berries in their raw condition are poisonous. The culinary use lays in its syrup, which is derived from the berries, as well in creations of jams, jellies, sauces and pies. Eating the cooked berries by themselves is not advised as they are bitter on their own. Elderberry wine is, on the other hand, is quite delicious. The only other edible part of the elder is its white flower blossoms, which can be deep fried, in a light batter.
