We grow the Elderberry varieties Coomer and Berry Hill (both varieities were developed in Vermont by Lewis Hill). A good friend gave us cuttings several years ago, and we have continued to take more (in April) and share every year...

Now before you go running for the door, raw egg white in a cocktail is fantastic and low maintenance impressive. It creates this frothy head to a cocktail and rounds all your flavors into this medley that coats your tongue like velvet.

Instead of wine, this juicy sangria is made with hard cider spiked with lemon juice and apple brandy.
The light, delicate sweetness of Asian pears really complements the unabashedly strong sage. Pears, sage, and honey are really just wonderful together.

This Roasted Apple Chicken is so delicious. It's made in one pan with bacon, potatoes, spinach, and a simple honey and grainy mustard sauce. It's an easy to make, healthy recipe perfect for apple season.
