About the event
Local herbalist and owner of Bee’s Knees Mercantile, Kassie Roedel, has been specially invited to guide the Elderberry Syrup Workshop on Saturday, November 18th, 1pm-2pm located at The Nook in Bigfork, Montana.
Elderberry Syrup has been a mainstay in many households to help prevent the effects of cold and flu season during the cold months ahead and are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and fiber.
Elderberries have been used in folk medicine for centuries. Historically, humans have used elderberry to combat cold viruses, sinusitis, and influenza as well as a diuretic and laxative (when consuming increased amounts). In fact, elderberries are poisonous in their raw and natural state and must be cooked and appropriately prepared for safe human consumption. That's why we always recommend sourcing your organic elderberry syrup from a licensed producer - like Montana Elderberry!
This immersive workshop focuses on the basics of Elderberry Syrup preparation using an Organic Elderberry Syrup Kit from Montana Elderberry (Bozeman, MT), a combination of quercetin-rich organic European black elderberries, organic warming spices, and organic ginger root. We'll use an adapted recipe using additional warming spices, citrus, herbs, and roots for participants to create a custom blend with the opportunity to concentrate the syrup into a batch of lozenges.
Each participant will help process the individual ingredients and take home a pint jar of elderberry syrup, as well as a pre-made sample of elderberry syrup to taste-test. Organic Elderberry Tea from Montana Elderberry will be available to sip on during the workshop.
