Elderberry juice is a tried and tested household remedy for colds and rightly so, because the berries are full of vitamin C. It also contains flavonoids that ward off free radicals. They thus have an anti-inflammatory effect and have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.

Alternatively, you can make the elderberry juice with a juicer. This is faster and easier. If the juice is too tart, you can mix it with some honey and mineral water.

Preparation steps

1.

Rinse the berries several times thoroughly. Remove the berries from the vine. Add to a large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes, until the berries are soft and appear wrinkled. Pour the mixture through cheesecloth or a fine strainer into another pot. Squeeze the fruit to remove as much liquid as possible.

2.

Alternately, you can process the berries through a juicer. This typically is much faster and more efficient.

3.

The elderberry juice is ready to be enjoyed after this process. If you'd like to enjoy for an extended period of time, you can preserve it. To do this, you must add the juice to bottles and seal with rubber stopper or screw-tops.

4.

Heat a pot of water, and add the bottles to the water bath. process for at least 30 minutes to ensure that the juice is sterilized and that pathogens are deterred from forming. Cool the bottles, and keep in a cool place.
