You’ll want to cut the clusters of Elderberry from its base. Do not process the leaves or stems, as they may contain problematic alkaloids. Note that raw elderberries should not be eaten, as they too have some of those problematic alkaloids, though not to the extent of the stems. Therefore always cook before eating.
The truly time consuming part of processing Elderberries is the stripping of the berries from their stems, after they’ve been thoroughly rinsed. It took me about 10 minutes to pick 4 pounds of berries on my last foray, and about 1 1/2 hours to de-stem them.
So, what do they taste like? A lot like blackberries, though they do have a taste and can be a bite tart. They make a jelly much like concord grape jelly, though not as cloying, and absolutely delicious.
