ORGANIC ELDERBERRY, whole
Botanical Name: Sambucus nigra
Origin: 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. They are always best consumed cooked, as cooking neutralizes the astringency and toxins that are naturally occuring in the seeds and stems of the berries. Elderberries are often combined with Echinacea. They have also been used in cordials, wines, and even ketchup recipes. The dried berries can be 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.

Great product and fast service.
Website was easy to use and helpful in pointing out that sometimes it's worth buying more product to save on shipping. Elderberries came on time and I've ready been able to use them!
They are beautiful and made the most delicious Elderberry syrup. Flavor is wonderful, and the berries are a very good size. Would highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for producing such a high quality product. Warmly, Lori DeBoer
This is my second online order placed. The service is fabulous however I find your shipping costs are very expensive. The customer should have options of how they would prefer to have their purchase shipped and at what cost (i.e. mail vs. courier).
