I ordered these so I could make my own Organic Elderberry Syrup (aka Sambucus). The organic store brands (I don't even bother with non organic) usually have an ingredient or two that I don't want to consume.
I used a recipe I found on MountainRoseHerbs(dot)com. Not only was it really easy to make, I only had to use 1/2 cup of berries, making several small jars of delicious syrup!
When I think of how expensive it is for a little jar of store bought syrup, making my own with my own ingredients in my own kitchen is a no brainer!
I don't expect I will need another 1lb bag for a while, but when I do, I'll be getting these.

Recipe:

1C Fresh OR 1/2C Dried Blue or Black Elderberries (Note: Red Berries are poisonous)
3C Water
1C Raw Honey
1 Cinnamon Stick
3 Cloves
Ginger to taste (fresh or powdered)

Place berries, water & spices in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer for 30 minutes. Smash berries to release remaining juice & strain the mixture. Allow to cool & stir in honey. Syrup will last 2 - 3 months stored in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!

Elderberries are popular for their unusual taste in pies, jellies, wine, and jams. Elderberry juice was used to treat a flu epidemic in Panama in 1995. We use these dried berries to make homemade elderberry syrup due to its immune boosting properties and save LOTS of money over purchasing ready made syrups. We can the syrup via water bath method to make it more shelf stable. Open containers of the syrup should be safe for consumption for 90 days when stored properly in a refrigerator. We take anywhere from 1/2 TB to 1 TB dose daily. When ill, we take 1 T every 3 hours, up to 6 times per day.

Our recipe is as follows:

Homemade Elderberry Syrup

Ingredients:
4 cup black elderberries (1 lb dried)
12 cups of water
4-6 cinnamon sticks cinnamon powder
1/2 - 1 Tb whole cloves
48 oz local organic honey

How to Make Elderberry Syrup:

Pour water into medium saucepan and add elderberries, cinnamon and cloves (do not add honey yet!)

Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about an hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half. At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled. Pour through a strainer into a large mixing bowl. Press the berries to extract as much liquid as possible from them.

Discard the elderberries, cloves, and cinnamon sticks by composting them!

Add honey to the liquid. When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, proceed to can it in 8 or 16 oz canning jars via water bath method.

Store open containers in the fridge (for up to 90 days) and take daily for its immune boosting properties.

I've bought elderberries directly from the Frontier website a couple of times, but this time I got them from Amazon. These elderberries are top quality and make a very good elderberry syrup. I swear by it for preventing or treating viral infections like cold or flu.

For those who haven't used them before, here is a good recipe:

1 cup dried elderberries
4 cups water
1/2 - 1 cup raw honey

Bring berries and watre to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until water has been reduced by 1/2. Strain the juice, squishing the berries in the strainer with a spoon to remove all the juice, then let it cool. Add the honey and stir. Store syrup in the fridge. Take a tablespoon daily to prevent illness, and if you're already sick take a teaspoon of it 4 times per day.

Elderberries are great...BUT MUST BE COOKED/SIMMERED FOR 20 TO 30 MINUTES...DO NOT GRIND THEM AND USE THEM IN A SMOOTHIE...BECAUSE THE SEEDS CONTAIN SMALL AMOUNT OF CYANIDE WHICH CAN MAKE YOU FEEL UNWELL OR YUCKY...COOKING THEM NULLIFYS THE CYANIDE AND THEN THEY ARE SAFE...:)...ive been an herbalist for 20 years.

I use Frontier Elder berries for homemade cold/flu syrup. I've tried other brands and got too many twigs and pieces of bark which can be toxic. I've reordered a number of times and always got a clean batch. The syrup I make brings out the flavor of the berries but doesn't mask it. When cooked down, the taste is reminiscent of figs. At least to me. All I do is rinse a cup of berries, add about 2 cups of water and slow boil for about an hour and a half. Reduce until you have just about a cup of liquid. I process the berries after to extract every bit of anti viral goodness from them then strain through a fine sieve.
I bring the strained liquid back to the pot and add some coconut sugar, not for taste as much as a preservative. I also add pure citric acid to taste. I like mine tart so I usually put in two or three teaspoon. This has its own health qualities but also help preserve the syrup. Next heat again just enough to meld the flavors and melt the sugar. When it cools a little, I add raw honey to taste. You don't want to boil it because..well....it won't be raw anymore. I bottle it up and keep refrigerated. I still have some from last year that is perfectly fine so it lasts a long time. It's October now so it's the perfect time to make it to have on hand for flu season. I buy two bags at a time because when I need it most, so does everyone else and they go out of stock. You also don't want to be making it once you get sick. It's good stuff and really makes a difference in clearing up a cold and lessening symptoms.
