Tasty Healthy Fun & Recipes

Elderberry is not just for health. Elderflowers and berries are tasty fun! Their distinctive flavors and colors have been used for hundreds of years in sauces, teas, cordials and wines. You can add elderberry juice to just about any beverage where you want a burst of dark blue berry flavor without the need to add sweetener. We will add to our recipe page as opportunity presents itself.

With half the sweetness of grapes, elderberries and elderberry juice are not bitter like many other high antioxidant fruits, which makes them an extremely versatile flavor punch as an added recipe ingredient in teas, fruti punch, cocktails, smoothies, energy drinks, beer and wine. We encourage juice bars, restaurants, breweries, wineries, meaderies and drinking establishments of all kinds to consider including Minnesota / midwest grown and processed elderberries and elderflowers in their product lines or menus.
