As summer has come to an end many people are preserving their garden harvest. I was surprised to read that elderberries can be poisonous (the seeds have chemicals that can convert into cyanide in the body) so they should be boiled before consuming.

Other foods that shouldn't be eaten raw (because of toxins) are castor beans, kidney beans, lima beans, rhubarb leaves, bitter almonds, eggplant, sprouts, apple seeds and potatoes.

Speaking of elderberries, as anybody attempted to make elderberry liquor? I tried and it turned out totally gross. Every recipe I read said it was foolproof.. guess not in my case.
