Wild Thyme Tea Desserts

Our desserts featured a thumbprint cookie filled with Elderberry Jam.  Elderberry is the best for warding off winter time illnesses.  And what better way to take your medicine than in a cookie?

The Cupcakes were made with teaberry, a native American herb with edible minty flavored fruits.  The leaves make a delicious herbal tea.  Teaberry is used as an ice cream flavor and inspired the name of Clark's Teaberry chewing gum.    The third dessert served was a Sassafras Sorbet. Yum!

Love all the ideas. When we first moved to Oregon we would pick elderberries in the park and use them for jelly. I once had them friend in a batter and they were delicious.

Hey, any excuse to eat more cookies! ;)

And I loved hearing about the herb behind the famous Teaberry chewing gum!
