Story, Folklore, History...
Elderberries have been used as a folk remedy for hundreds of years in North America, Europe, Western Asia, and North Africa. In some areas, the “elder tree” was thought to ward off evil influence and give protection to the community from witches. Other cultures believed the opposite, proclaiming that witches liked to congregate under the branches, especially when it is full of fruit around harvest time.
While it was originally placed in the honeysuckle family Elderberries are now classified as being a part of the Adoxaceae family.
