You must cook Elderberries if you plan to eat them. The leaves and stems are toxic. The fruits of the elder tree are edible, but due to the presence of a cyanide-like chemical they must be cooked first.
Whole ripe elderberries, which have gone from green to reddish purple to almost black, have long been used to make pies, pastries, jams, jellies, wine, cordials and syrup. The dried berries are also added to tea blends.
Dried elderberries are attractive additions to potpourri mixtures and floral displays
