elderberry elixir

September 29, 2011

the potent syrup!

This week we decided to make a few jars of elderberry elixir. Since we just finished a cold and Lukas has asthmatic reactions whenever he has a cold, I think it best to avoid colds completely (I hope!) Elderberry has been scientifically proven to prevent the flu virus from entering the body in many cases and helps heal colds and the flu quickly, should it come in. So, at least it can’t hurt to have a teaspoon of this every day during the Fall and Winter (and Spring and Summer…). In fact, it is so tasty, you really just want to keep drinking the entire bottle! Our recipe was this one but we love  A Kid’s Herb Book by Lesley Tierra and there are lots of these kinds of recipes in there too.
