Our elderberry syrup, elderberry shrub and elderberry juice have a 2 year shelf life.

HOW DO YOU USE ELDERBERRY SYRUP?
We enjoy elderberry syrup, shrub or juice straight up served in a spoon or shot glass, added to bubbly water, in cocktails, smoothies, mixed in salad dressings, in ginger tea, with juice or kombucha, on ice cream, as a marinade, with oatmeal, homemade gummies and yes... pancakes too.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SYRUP AND THE SHRUB?
Our syrup and shrub are made with our farm grown elderberry juice but the syrup is blended with more honey than the shrub which has apple cider vinegar. Shrub is our most popular offering and even folks who have had discouraging experiences with vinegar in the past are quick to agree this stuff is the best!

HOW MUCH ELDERBERRY SYRUP DO YOU TAKE?
We love to eat and drink elderberry in everything from homemade sodas to dressings to red wine! When Louise notices a cold or flu coming on she'll take a teaspoon or so 2-6 times per day until she feels well. Jed regularly enjoys elderberry to benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects on his sore elbows and knees. Some folks swear by taking a teaspoon daily to support natural immunity because they work at a daycare or hospital and they report not getting sick as often or for as long ! What an amazing fruit!
Our elderberry syrup and shrub have 3,300 mg of elderberry per teaspoon / 5 ml while the juice has 4,800 mg of elderberry per teaspoon / 5 ml. If you take a look at other elderberry offerings you'll quickly notice ours has two to four times more elderberry per serving! How do we do it? We press fresh berries without added water unlike the other offerings that are from dried or powdered stuff and diluted with lots of water. We give ya only the best because thats what we like too!
