Native White Elderberry
White berries were eaten raw (Flood, 1980:96)
Edible berries can be eaten raw or cooked and are a good source of vitamins A and C.
Berries ripen in late summer.
Fruits are 'juicy, a little sour with soft seeds and of pleasant flavour.' (Cribb & Cribb, 1987:56)
Juice from the berries can be cooked down into a sweetened syrup. The syrup may be used in beverages, poured over pancakes, frozen in ice creams or combined with pectin for jelly.
