*Note: There are several varieties of elderberries, if you ARE NOT sure of the toxicity of the elderberries you will be using, contact your local agriculture office. Do not, by any means, use berries you are unsure of. And I am going to put a disclaimer here...I am not liable for any harm that may arise from the consumption of this syrup. It is up to YOU to ensure the safety of the berries prior to your personal use.
