Default Elderberry Syrup

Who uses Elderberry syrup? What can you tell me about it? Where do you get it, how much do you take, how often, etc etc. Do you see a difference using it vs not using it?

We already have crud going through our house and it's not even winter yet. I need to kick this stuff in the bud before it gets worse. I looked at Walmart today and they do have it but it's a 4oz bottle for $10. And it says take up to 4 times a day (2tsp for adults, 1 for kids). So for me and the 2 kids that bottle isn't going to last very long.

We make our own.we buy dried elderberries in bulk from our local crunchy/organic store for $23/lb. I use a recipe that makes 3 cups of syrup from 1 cup of elderberries. My kids like it on pancakes and the youngest one drinks it diluted like juice sometimes. I need to make another batch tomorrow.

How do you make your own? A friend just told me that you need to buy it local for it to work. :-/ No one around here makes it that I know of

I haven't tried it. My friend swears by this recipe, I'm planning to try this too this winter:

1 cup Bragg's ACV
1 cup local, raw honey
8 cloves garlic
Blend, store in fridge, take 2 teaspoons daily. You can mix into water/ juice if you prefer. People do it as a hot tea, sometimes subbing lemon juice, when they're already sick.

I've made my own for years. I think it works. Out of 6 of us (7 when oldest DD was still home), we rarely get sick, and when we do, it doesn't last long. I'll see if I can find the recipe that way I don't have to type it out.

That looks easy enough. Now to price all the ingredients.

Mountain Rose Herbs is out of Elderberries. Maybe I'll make a trip into the "city" and see if I can find a health food store.

I bought a bag of dried elderberries last winter to make our own, but never did. It's still sealed so hopefully they are still good. I got them off Amazon but they are from Frontier.

I get my dried berries either through a Frontier co-op or Amazon.
