Elder Berries | A Powerhouse of Health Support
Elder berries are reported to be effective against eight different strains of influenza. They can help prevent infections by supporting immunity, ease symptoms from allergies that affect our sinuses and respiratory tracts, and shorten recovery time. And best of all, properly harvested and prepared, Elder is generally safe for children.
According to Maria Noël Groves (Body Into Balance, Storey Publishing) compounds found in elder berries can help block receptor sites that viruses use to get into our cells. These magical berries are loaded with antioxidants, contain potassium, beta carotenes, calcium, phosphorous, and vitamin c.
Elder berries can be made into tea, syrup, flavored vinegars, extracts, and even wine. Groves suggests that it is best to use both flowers and berries dried (or cooked) rather than fresh due to mild cyanide-related compounds found in fresh berries and even the flowers. The content of these compounds is even higher in the unripe berries so it is important to harvest only the fully ripened fruit.
A well-rounded seasoning blend of whole cut herbs and spices for grinding directly before use. The larger cut of the seasonings holds flavor and aroma in much longer than fine ground spices. This blend goes anywhere pepper goes and may be a welcoming new taste for those trying to cut down on the use of salt.
