If you are looking for something to help you through this cold and flu season check out Lisa's Elderberry Elixir! Our family swears by it to keep healthy during the winter and our farm members received a free sample this year (thanks Lisa!!). Cool Breeze Farm was even able to have some of our elderberries used in some of her batches this year. We hope to cultivate more trees this spring for next year's harvest. Below you will find a message from Lisa describing her process, dosage, & benefits of the elixir as well as pricing. Local orders only.
My Elderberry Elixir is made with organic ingredients. I use dried US elderberries, cinnamon, cloves, ginger root, spices, Celtic sea salt, and filtered spring water. I simmer it with healthful intentions in a dedicated Gluten free, dairy free, nut free, soy free stainless steel pot. It is stored in boiled/sterilized glass jars with sterilized BPA free lids and rings. Some sediment or bits of berry is normal.
Elderberries have the multiple healthful properties making them a great addition to boosting immunity with the added bonus of tasting great on ice cream, pie, pancakes, or as a toddy with a dash of brandy! These amazing berries contain high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, the antioxidant quercitin, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties.
In our home we dose 1 teaspoon for children and 1 tablespoon per adult when illness strikes, or when we’ve been exposed to someone who shows symptoms soon after. Some people I know dose every day for the whole winter. Some dose 2 weeks on 1 week off. There is a wealth of information online about elderberries and the “syrup” that I call “elixir” since it is much thinner than many expect a syrup to be. You decide what works best for your family.
