Traditional Elderberry Syrup Making (Local & Fresh)

Oct. 20 (Saturday) 2018, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

At Herbal Healing, Inc. (Bay G, 2410 2nd Ave SE Calgary)

Elderberries are Exciting – they are the traditional and amazing Superfood of the Rocky Mountains! Elderberry was a choice medicine for early Canadians, Americans and Europeans, being widely antiviral & anti-inflammatory in nature. Elderberries can even be used for art, as they provide both blue and red pigment when properly prepared.

They are naturally low-sugar and provide berry flavor and coloring to many common foods and candies. Preservation of the medicinal values of the berry, and their high antioxidant value, are a key factor in creating a high-quality elderberry product.

Using a traditional pioneer recipe, we will explore the vast medicine, art & food uses of the elderberry tree and make some tasty gourmet syrup to take home from fresh, locally grown elderberries. Don’t miss out on this quirky, fun and informative workshop on a truly unique Canadian medicine.
