When I was a kid growing up in Western New York my dad and I used to go to the old New York Central Stockyards to pick these. There were tons of bushes, enough for the birds to fill up on and have some left over for us. They made great pies.
I have since moved to the Cleveland, Ohio area and have been trying like crazy to find fresh Elderberries and no one can seem to help me. I realize they do not come into season until later in the summer, but can anyone tell me where I can buy these to make some of those great pies? I have tried all the old farm markets, West Side Market etc., but to no luck. I would be eternally grateful if someone out there could help me with this one.
