I Heart Macro, week 14.

Svarthyllbær, foreløpig grønne og umodne, men det er mange bærklaser så jeg håper på å kunne plukke noen etterhvert som de blir modne.


Elderberries, still green and not yet ripe, but there are lots of berries so I hope for a little harvest eventually.




Buskene er fulle av bær ettersom jeg ikke plukket hylleblomster i år. Nå skal det bli hyllebærsaft istedet for hylleblomstsaft (om ikke fuglene tar bærene før meg).


There are plenty of elderberries because I did not pick any flowers earlier in summer. 
This year I would like to make elderberry syrup instead of elderflower cordial (that is if the birds don't get to the berries before me).



Svarthyll hører ikke opprinnelig hjemme i Norge, men kom hit trolig i middelalderen (muligens tidligere), og er blitt dyrket som kulturplante siden den gang.


The elder bush is not native to Norway, but was probably brought here in the Middle Ages (or perhaps earlier), and has been in cultivation ever since.



Bærene er rike på vitamin C, og hyllebærsaft er bra ved forkjølelse, feber og influensa.


The berries are rich in vitamin C, and elderberry syrup is good against cold, fever and flu.



Jeg synes bærklasene er dekorative, særlig med regndråpene på :)


I think the clusters of berries look pretty, especially with the raindrops :)

Even though they aren't ripe, they make wonderful photos! I love the simplicity of the theme.

Vackra bilder! Jag hoppas du hinner plocka en del bär innan fåglarna äter upp dem alla.

Flotte bilder, og lykke til med plukkingen!

I want to try using elderberries for the first time this summer. Here in Iceland we don´t do anything with the... I´m just wondering at what point you pick those berries?

Hilde said...

Kristin; the berries can be picked when they have turned black as then they are ripe :) Use berries only, no stems.
