“Isn’t it fascinating how the nature provides us with precisely the fruit you need to cure the flu precisely when we need it most?”
The harvest, continued. My mum asked this question yesterday after me and my brother had frantically picked 10 kilos of apples, two kilos of pears, a bowl full of blackberries and filled our two biggest pans with enourmous amounts of elderberries (we just couldn’t stop). “Isn’t it fascinating?”, she asked. And I thought, she was right, indeed.
Making elderberry juice is incredibly easy, inexpensive (they literally grow on every corner) and you can produce large quantities of it very quickly. Elderberries are antioxidants and contain large quantities of vitamin A (to strenghten your immune system, B6 (for your nervous system) and C (to eradicate free radicals). Just one cup of elderberry juice will provide you with 78 procent of your daily vitamin C dose! And you know what: It’s super delicious, too. You know that flu season will start sooner than you’d like, so you should better get plucking and stock up your shelf!
