i love elderberries and this year, the scientists have declared that elderberry syrup will bind on your cells and PREVENT the flu virus from entering. no side effects and yummy syrup. i will have to admit that i take it daily. it prevents me from getting sick and makes me feel healthy. i do have lung disease but had zero flu or bronchitis till i ran out of elderberry syrup for 10 days. oh em gee! i was sick for weeks till i started taking a tsp. 4 times a day. pretty soon, i had no more fever and was feeling much better! i have bought 6 more cuttings to plant more elderberry bushes. that will make 9 or 10 depending and how many live through our weird, wet, winter.
if you’ve noticed, i have gone back to my writing style i stole from e.e. cummings when i was in high school. no caps. i love to write this way and on every other site i have stuck to it. i’m not sure why i felt i couldn’t be myself here. my bad.
the recipe is at the link as is the great article written by happy healthy mama. enjoy!!
