  • TOP-QUALITY ELDERBERRIES – Frontier Co-op Organic Elderberries (botanical name: Sambucus nigra) are part of the honeysuckle family. They are attractive, dark berries that are used to make jams, syrups, juices, and wine. They are often part of sweet treats, too – such as pies, crumbles, and more.
  • FLAVORFUL, VERSATILE BERRIES – Elderberries deliver flexible options for many culinary needs. They are used in sweet syrups and desserts, and they provide a pleasant, fruity aroma. This dark, purple berry also complements teas and warming winter cordials.

    I have bought these elderberries multiple times. I make my own elderberry syrup. However, this time I have noticed that the price is nearly $10 more than just last month! Taking advantage of people in the height of this horrible flu season, I guess.

    Elderberries are great…BUT MUST BE COOKED/SIMMERED FOR 20 TO 30 MINUTES…DO NOT GRIND THEM AND USE THEM IN A SMOOTHIE…BECAUSE THE SEEDS CONTAIN SMALL AMOUNT OF CYANIDE WHICH CAN MAKE YOU FEEL UNWELL OR YUCKY…COOKING THEM NULLIFYS THE CYANIDE AND THEN THEY ARE SAFE…:)…ive been an herbalist for 20 years.

    I use to as many others have stated love this product and made syrup for the past 2 years. This price hike is crazy. Are their no more Elderberries in the world that we now need to raise the price dramatically!?! Also, if you are going to raise the price keep the quality of the product the same. I will not buy this product again at this price. Remove the stems and stop price gouging.

    I usually purchase the Viva Labs elderberries but since Frontier is the more established reigning brand I wanted to give it a try. The first thing I noticed were tons and tons of giant stems when I opened the package. I had to sift through everything before I made my syrup to weed out the giant stems, and then, lo and behold, I found a piece of red yarn in there! ??????? The berries also didn’t look consistent, like there were lots of white ones like they weren’t ripe. I don’t know if it’s because of the seller I bought this from since all of these other reviews are just glowing. But I’m assuming this product should consistently be the same regardless of who sells it. This is definitely not even coming close to the quality I find in the Viva Labs elderberries. Going back to that brand. And returning this one because of the freakin’ red yarn!

    Update– The price gauge is crazy! Goes from $21 two months ago, all the way up to $43?! I just checked prices an hour ago and it increased by $2 more in just an hour! This has got to stop.I have made many batches of elderberry syrup during the past few weeks (65 jars!). I received a new bag today from this company. Made one round of syrup. It looked somewhat oily on the top of the liquid. It has never looked that way before. The taste, even with honey and all the syrup ingredients, was horrific! I thought maybe I forgot an ingredient in the syrup. So I threw it out and started over. Same thing happened! Same disgusting taste. It says there are no returns (of course) but I would like a refund for a product I can’t even use. My elderberry syrup customers were just told they need to wait a week for a new batch to arrive. I would give this zero stars but it makes me choose at least one star.

    I purchased this product in February and had plans to make syrup for my family to prevent from getting a cold. I just opened the bag only to find a bunch of tiny stems in the bag too many to sit and pick all of them out. The stems of the Elderberry plant are POISONOUS!!! These are not properly sifted and it’s a good thing that I looked through the bag first. I lost money as Amazon refuses to refund this product. If this were consumed, I would have been in the hospital as well as my family. I will not purchase this product again.

    Elderberries are popular for their unusual taste in pies, jellies, wine, and jams. Elderberry juice was used to treat a flu epidemic in Panama in 1995. We use these dried berries to make homemade elderberry syrup due to its immune boosting properties and save LOTS of money over purchasing ready made syrups. We can the syrup via water bath method to make it more shelf stable. Open containers of the syrup should be safe for consumption for 90 days when stored properly in a refrigerator. We take anywhere from 1/2 TB to 1 TB dose daily. When ill, we take 1 T every 3 hours, up to 6 times per day.Our recipe is as follows:Homemade Elderberry SyrupIngredients:4 cup black elderberries (1 lb dried)12 cups of water4-6 cinnamon sticks cinnamon powder1/2 – 1 Tb whole cloves48 oz local organic honeyHow to Make Elderberry Syrup:Pour water into medium saucepan and add elderberries, cinnamon and cloves (do not add honey yet!)Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about an hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half. At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled. Pour through a strainer into a large mixing bowl. Press the berries to extract as much liquid as possible from them.Discard the elderberries, cloves, and cinnamon sticks by composting them!Add honey to the liquid. When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, proceed to can it in 8 or 16 oz canning jars via water bath method.Store open containers in the fridge (for up to 90 days) and take daily for its immune boosting properties. (Some sources recommend taking only during the week and not on the weekends to boost immunity)Standard dose is 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp for kids and 1/2 Tbsp to 1 Tbsp for adults. If the flu or a cold does strike, take the normal dose every 2-3 hours instead of once a day until symptoms disappear.*Recipe has been Modified from Wellness MamaCost comparison for 1 TB Serving size: Homemade is $.166/ounce & Store Bought $2.625/ounce.-STORE VERSION: $21 for 16 servings (1 TB servings) $2.625 per ounce or $1.3125 per serving.-ORGANIC HOMEMADE: 93 oz, $31 for 186 servings (1 TB servings) $.33 per ounce or $.166 per serving Cost of Ingredients: Honey $11, $19 Elderberries $1.00 for spice to make 93 ounces.
