ELDERBERRY

#26- Elderberry, Sambucus nigra

How I do love Elderberries! They are so beautiful and bring so much comfort. There are many Elders on the land we live on but the one by our front door is so dear to me. Elder is an amazing anti-viral, fever reducer, expectorant, blood sugar balancer, an immune enhancer and it is naturally high in Quercetin. It is a family favorite tea, especially in winter.

Here is a great Elderberry syrup making video made by Heather of Mommypotamus.com. She has so many great DIY videos on her site. Her kitchen is much fancier than mine and you won’t hear brother’s playing electric guitars or fighting in the background, whereas in my kitchen… well….you just might. 


Here’s a video on how to make Elderberry Jelly:
