Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Sambucus nigra
Origin: Bulgaria / Croatia / Albania
Production: Elder is a flowering plant that is native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia. It produces large clusters of small, white flowers in the spring, followed by small blueish black (sometimes red) berries.
Qualities: Elderberries naturally contain vitamins A, B, and C, and they have a long history of use in traditional European medicine. The berries and flowers of the Elder plant are most commonly used to boost the immune system, improve heart health, treat coughs, and cold and flu symptoms.
Common Use: Elderberries can be used in healing teas, tinctures, and syrups, and are often combined with Echinacea. They have also been used in cordials, wines, and even ketchup recipes. The dried berries can be added to muffin or pancake recipes for a flavor similar, but less sweet, to that of blueberries.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

I normally pick my berries fresh, for tincturing, and syrup. (Last year because of forest fires in my area, I was unable to get out to pick.I decided this year I would try using dried berries.) The color and taste of these berries is promising. (I've already crushed some and made tea. Nice flavor and color!) This is my first time working with dried berries I'm curious to see how my syrup and tinctures turn out.
We received the elderberry bag promptly. The product was as described. We have prepared tea and is aromatic. Mom used to prepare a tea with the flowers of another species of elderberries and added honey and spices to combat respiratory illnesses. We are also adding it to the grinder with coffee beans and it gives the coffee a fruity taste.
