i love elderberries and this year, the scientists have declared that elderberry syrup will bind on your cells and PREVENT the flu virus from entering. no side effects and yummy syrup. i will have to admit that i take it daily. it prevents me from getting sick and makes me feel healthy. i do have lung disease but had zero flu or bronchitis till i ran out of elderberry syrup for 10 days. oh em gee! i was sick for weeks till i started taking a tsp. 4 times a day. pretty soon, i had no more fever and was feeling much better! i have bought 6 more cuttings to plant more elderberry bushes. that will make 9 or 10 depending and how many live through our weird, wet, winter.
if you’ve noticed, i have gone back to my writing style i stole from e.e. cummings when i was in high school. no caps. i love to write this way and on every other site i have stuck to it. i’m not sure why i felt i couldn’t be myself here. my bad.
the recipe is at the link as is the great article written by happy healthy mama. enjoy!!

I love the name of this cake! Only in the South will you find a cake called “Pig Pickin’ Cake” and only in the South will you find folks that know what “Pig Pickin'” means to begin with! I have seen this recipe on various food sites and such and sometimes even if they get the name right, they still don’t know why it’s called “Pig Pickin’ Cake”. I have seen a few attribute the name to how people ‘pig out’ when they get a taste of the cake or that they make pigs out of themselves over it. So, for those of you who are wondering about the name, a ‘pig pickin’ is a pig roast or when a whole pig is barbequed for a bunch of people. The guests all usually bring side dishes and desserts and that sort of thing and this cake became very popular as a perfect cool ending to such a meal. Most think it gained popularity back in the seventies or around that time. It seems like so many of the good recipes came about back in the seventies for some reason.
Now there are several variations and even names for this cake, but this is the recipe my Aunt Vel uses and if I do say so myself, hers is one of the best. Here is what her recipe calls for:
1 butter cake mix
1/2/ cup vegetable oil
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 (15 oz.) can Mandarin oranges, chopped and drained (reserve juice)
1 (5 oz.) box of instant vanilla pudding
1 (8oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 (16 oz.) large frozen whipped topping

Dig a 4-to-6-inch-deep trench that is as long as your tomato seedling is tall.
Remove the seedling from its pot and gently massage the rootball apart. Snip off the leaves on the lower portion of the stem, leaving two to four sets of leaves at the top of the stem to ensure enough leaf surface for photosynthesis.
