Aiden spent the weekend with us on the farm. He is proudly pointing to the elderberries he helped pick. Funny, the elderberries that are growing in the shade are ripe, and the ones in the sun are still green. Anyway, Grandma got tired of cleaning elderberries before she had enough for a pie, even though Aiden was helping. She mixed in a pint of frozen black raspberries to finish the pie.
Aiden was eagerly anticipating the pie, but when he tasted it, he didn't like it.
Former farmhand William remarked that I should save the elderberries to make elderberry wine, he thinks it makes very good wine.
