Elderberries Sambucus nigra
Black elderberries are shiny, round, dark purple berries that have been used in Europe and northern Africa for a long time.
They’re the fruit of a shrub called the black elder, which goes by the scientific name Sambucus nigra. Native to Europe, the black elder isn’t the same as the American elder, a different species despite many similarities to the black elder. Great for our immune system!
