Native to parts of Europe, North America, and Asia, elderberries have been found in folklore, traditional and Indigenous medicine, and culinary practices dating back centuries.
Today, elderberry is most commonly used in teas, oxymels, tinctures, and extracts to ease cold and flu symptoms and support the immune system.
In the culinary world, elderberry lends its bright, sweet, slightly acidic flavour to jams, wines, and syrups.
CAUTION: In addition to other parts of the plant, elderberry must be cooked prior to use. Raw (including dry) elderberry is toxic and can result in serious digestive issues including vomiting and severe diarrhea.
