Elderberries taste similar to blackberries and blueberries. They are wonderful for making pies, muffins, sauces, jams and jellies. Elderberry is probably the best berry for processing. Rich in vitamin C, B6, A and iron, elderberries also contain a lot of fibers. Let your imagination turn them in something delicious.

Medicinal properties

Amerindians and Europeans have been using elderberry as a medicinal plant for centuries. Elderberry was so intimately integrated into European's life that it was customary to give an elderberry bush to your children when they moved out to live on their own.

In traditional herbal medicine, all the parts of the plant where used. Recent studies have demonstrated that elderberry helps relieve constipation, sore throats and has antiviral properties (Zakay-Rones et al, 1995; Zakay-Rones et al, 2004).This makes elderberry a great ally when you have a cold or the flu.

American elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) has shown some potential to inhibit specific strains of cancerous cells.

A study conducted with a product made from European elderberry showed another benefit in that it activates the healthy immune system by increasing cytokines production. (Barak et al. 2001; 2002).

Blumenthal & al. 1998 reported that elderberry flowers had a diaphoretic action and helped increase bronchial secretion. They can be taken for that purpose as a herbal tea or in tincture and help in case of fever or bronchitis.

A salve made from elder leaves can be helpful in alleviating pain from rheumatism (Schneider A, 2002) and sprains (Hoffman D, 2003).

The Berry

Elderberry is a purplish black berry which grows in flattened clusters. Its beautiful colour comes from anthocyanins, an antioxydant found in large amount in each fruit. Elderberry's antioxidant capacity is quite impressive.
