This recipe is taken from James Wong's excellent book "Grow Your Own Drugs" (a year with James Wong). All the berries contain high levels of vitamin C (rosehips alone have about 20 times more vitamin C than oranges!), and elderberry is an excellent antiviral. Taken regularly as a tonic this can be used to support your immune system through the winter months.
*Identification & Countryside rules - It is important that you identify the correct plant as there are some poisonous look-a-likes. There are lots of identification books on the market and my particular favourite is "The Wildflower Key" by Francis Rose. There are also some ID Facebook Groups that can help with IDing plants from photos. With regard to what you can collect from nature, it isn't usually an offence to pick fruit, foliage, fungi or flowers (the four F's) for home use (there are different rules if picking for commercial purposes). You can check full info via Naturenet about the countryside law.
