Modern research holds they possess anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties and are anti-oxidant rich i.e. capable of preventing cell damage.

Cobbler, for those not yet in the know, is like a cross between shortbread and a dumpling, and it’s soooooo good. Continue reading “Spiced Elderberry and Damson Cobbler”
