Norm’s Farms elderberry extract and syrup are $5 off this week. Look for demos in stores this weekend.
The medicinal and nutritional properties of elderberries range from anti-inflammatory, immune system supporting, and anti-viral properties (among others) to a high nutrient value (more Vitamin C than oranges, more vitamin A than raisins) and anti-oxidant properties, as shown in the chart below. Norm’s Farms of Pittsboro is one of our local suppliers of elderberry products. (The elderberries are grown on the family farm in Missouri, although Norm’s is encouraging of local elderberry growers and acts as a elderberry bush nursery.)
In addition to jams and jellies, we carry Elderberry Extract and Elderberry Wellness Syrup. The extract is pure elderberry, with a slightly sour taste. The wellness syrup includes elderberries, honey, and spices. You can eat a spoonful straight from the bottle or make a yummy Wellness tea: mix 1 Tbsp of syrup with 6 oz of boiling water.
