Anyone ever used them? What do they taste like?

"Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries."  Let the Monty Python jokes begin :)

Oh, and I have no idea what they taste like

I've only had them in pie, but they taste pretty much like blackberries from what I remember, maybe a little more tart. It's been several years.

I love elderberry pie!  Elderberries are definitely more tart than a blackberry, and have a drier sweetness.  They don't seem to have as concentrated a flavor as a red raspberry - they're somewhere between a blackberry and a red raspberry in that regard.

I have nothing to add, except that I'm glad this thread was started.  I plan to secondary my mead on elderberries - its good to know what the flavor might add.

PS - Just introduced my 7 year old daughter to Monty Python's 'Quest for the Holy Grail' this weekend - she didn't find it as amusing as my wife & I (but she didn't hate it).
