Elderberry ( Sambucus canadensis)
Although unknown to many, the elderberry has long been popular with landscapers, gourmets and healers. The Romans valued the elderberry for its medicinal properties. Modern herbalists use the bark, the flower or the fruit in various forms to heal eye problems, skin rashes or kidney and blood ailments.
The white elderberry offers gourmets a wide range of possibilities, from pastries to wines and liqueurs, jellies and elderberry vinegar. At Gourmet Sauvage, it is the chef’s favourite berry!
