my youngest daughter Anna is a herborist she made an extremely good sirop with e.g.elderblossom 'recently chosen as aperitif for a wedding party'
she put also 'Filipendula Ulmaria ' in -English Meadowsweet which blooms now and use it also in jams and jellies

I didnt freeze the berries - it didnt occur to me actually! I just followed the recipie as posted here and published by Waitrose; a large chain of supermarket here in the UK.
It was enough to put me off rowanberries for a very long time, if not for good!
On a brighter note, my recent elderflower cordial was a huge success - very popular and I should have made at least 3 times the amount, and the elderberry wine and gorse wine are coming along nicely
