Elderberry juice is that magical potion gifted to us by the other world to bring our brain and central nerve system to top performance throughout the dark and cold months of the winter time.
And so they are there, everywhere, ripe and ready with the first cool autumn breeze, waiting for us to plug and select and boil them down into the delicious dark red juice they are.
Elder bushes grow literally everywhere in gardens, parks, woods, out in nature. They often grow not all too high so you can easily blug them from the lower branches.
Take them home and select them into a cooking pot, you can choose to sort the berries picking out the green unripe ones.
Now boil them for an hour or two on medium heat and fill them into glass bottles. Make sure to sterelize the bottles beforehand and close them with a vakuum.
Et voila, ready is your smart brain potion. It tasts most delicious when you mix it in a cup with 2/3 hot water and agave sirup!
And when all this is too much for you – too much too much – just go to the bio store, apotheke or reformhaus, you can purchase it there, too!
Thanks Plänterwald + Die alte Göttenin und ihre Pflanzen + Dr. Sebi for your inspirations on the elder bush/ berry / blossoms <3
Lisa M. bodylucious is all about sharing the food heavens that elevate ourselves in our bodies to cloud #9. I have been spending a lot of time in the past years to experiment with food and nutrition: on what is good for me, what makes me feel happy and healthy, what gives me the nutrients I need has my body relax. Trying so many various schools of nutrition was part of this journey. It brought me to my one and only golden truth that our body knows exactly what nutrients it needs or lacks and which food will best provide these. And the more, our body lets us know what it needs through our appetite and cravings. That is why I love cravings as they are a pure expression of our body’s wisdom. YES, even the ones for chocolate and lemonade. And yes, I am crazy. Did I get you curious? Check out all about the BodyLucious Food for Thought and Business here.
