Elderberry pie. Everyone I know remembers their mother or their grandmother making elderberry pie, but they don't eat it very often now. The taste is distinctive, a kind of musky, earthy, sweet purple taste that is unlike any other berry I've ever tasted. I think the taste and aroma of elderberries brings back memories of mothers. That must be why people who like it, like it so well.

I spent 2 hours cleaning elderberries tonight, yielding 10 cups of elderberries which I promptly put in freezer bags, labeled, and stuck in the freezer. I cannot imagine anyone cleaning elderberries for any reason other than love or the promise of a blue ribbon at the county fair!
