How to Use:
To make a tea, steep 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a cup of boiled water for a few minutes or to taste. Strain and enjoy with a bit of honey, if you wish. To make a syrup, follow the instructions included on the bag and below.
Here is our recipe to make a syrup:
1/2 cup dried black elderberries (about 2 ounces)
2 1/2 cups of water
1/2 - 2/3 cup raw honey
Optional: 2 tbsp fresh or dried ginger root, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves or clove powder.
Pour water into medium saucepan and add elderberries and spices. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until the liquid has reduced by half. Let cool. Mash the berries with a spoon and pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl. Let the liquid cool to lukewarm add honey and stir well. Refrigerate.
Dosage: ½ - 1 tsp children and ½ - 1 tbsp adults. Up the dose frequency every 2-3 hours when experiencing acute immune threats.

what is the recipe for making your elderberry elixer which includes grain alcohol?
Hi Barbara, Thanks for your review! We do have an elderberry syrup recipe on each bag of our dried elderberries (and on the product page), to which you can add a small amount of alcohol if you wish it to have a longer shelf life. We don't use grain alcohol in any of our recipes.
The berries are top notch, I appreciate the recipe on the bag for syrup! Its my go to when my Littles are sick.
Mid-January I ran out of my locally-gathered elderberries. Oh no!! My family takes elderberry syrup throughout the long, cold winters, to keep our immune systems fortified. I ordered from Red Moon, and received my delivery within just a few days. I made elderberry syrup and was pleased with the quality of the product. I really like their kind and gentle spirit, their attention to quality and their grateful connection to mother earth. <3
I ordered to make Elderberry syrup. I am really happy with the berries and the timely manner of shipping. The recycling packaging was wonderful. I am excited to purchase more products from this wonderful company.
