Dried Elderberries Sambucus nigra
Native to the British Isles, the small dark elderberry makes an excellent "port" style wine. The appearance of berries on the bushes is said to have signalled farmers when to sow their wheat. The berries are also reputed to have been used to make one of the first black hair dyes in ancient Greece.
