Oxyclean will remove the green goo quite well. Just DON'T use hot water or it will set up hard.

In Florida decades ago I juiced them, added lemon juice and made jelly. 
Mostly in England I just added lemon juice and some sugar and water and we 
drank it.  I must have made jam there too, I remember vast quantities of 
berries.  The only problem with the America species is the sticky green goo 
that can appear around the top edge of the container.  I don't remember it 
in jam making, but definitely if you make elderbery wine.  I remember a 
German guy at a Nafex meeting talking about it and saying that the only 
thing he'd found to remove it was acetone.  Doesn't seem to happen with the 
European berries.  So don't let it alarm you if you encounter it, you didn't 
do anything wrong.    Donna
