In honor of Father’s Day, I want to share my experiences with elderberries and swimming pools. Of course, these two things go together, thanks to our dad, Floyd Dee. You see, when we were youngin’s he enjoyed makin’ homebrews like banana wine and elderberry wine. Now I was a bit too young to remember the banana wine, but I do remember the elderberry wine. See we did more than just swim in our backyard pool, we also stomped our share of elderberries. I wish I had a few pictures of us stomping but I could only find this old polaroid of us. Our feet were purple for days.
In closing, I’d like to wish all you dads a “Happy Father’s Day” and share Floyd Dee’s handwritten wine recipe. Attempt at your own risk…wink!
