Elderberries are wonderful. So rich in vitamin C. We drink this "tasty tea" to ward off a cold or flu. You can drink it when you start to feel a bug coming on, or when you're in the thick of it . It helps build immunity and repair your health. Instead of steeping these little berries, you want to make a decoction.
Put a tablespoon of berries in a medium size pot , cover with two inches of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
The result is this beautiful magenta colored tea.
Add a spoonful of honey and you are on the mend! The kiddos will love it too!
