This is 100% elderberry juice – no sugar is added. You can use in a variety of ways – we add a tablespoon or so to a glass of water to help maintain our immune systems due to the anti-viral properties of elderberry. You can also add to smoothies or other juices to get a boost of antioxidants. Some of our customers make their own gummy bears or cough syrup for their kids.
All our jams and juices are made in our non-state licensed kitchen. Ben and Natalie are registered MN Cottage Food Producers and good food safety practices are in place, both at the farm level and in our kitchen. We use a lot of stainless steel equipment, wash hands frequently, and use hydrogen peroxide as a sanitizer. Our fruits are low pH, so they are at much less risk for contamination. We use a low sugar recipe which is about 60% is fruit and 40% sugar.
