I seem to recall that the flowers of Sambucus sp. is good for the lung congestion and to relieve the stress from couphing. Whereas the berries themselves help the immune response.
So really use them both is what I've done.


And from the old threads you will note that depending on where you are in the world all kinds of coloured berries are used {obviously some taste better, and there can be differences between fresh and prepared berries} - but be very careful to make sure there is absolutely no twigs or woody bits in particularly the Red berry varieties.

We would never have thought of eating flowers like that had we not read it on here!!!!  .


John, would you mind sharing how you fried your flowers? Did you  egg and flour them or use just flour ?   And what did you think they tasted like?  Ever done zucchini flowers like this? You can do those too. Just make sure they're all bug free. Don't know if that kind of meat is compliant. Thanks

Hi italybound, I did a very light batter of rice flour and water, dipped the whole flower in it and then put the whole flower in hot olive oil.  
Thinking back I think it would be better if you just dusted them in rice flour and then put them into hot oil.
They have a distinct flavour I cannot describe but we enjoyed them very much.  
I had too many of them and too much Vitamin C makes me ache badly, so I think they  they maybe full of Vit C.  
They did not do the same to John.  Good Luck. Pip. (of pipnjohn)
