anyone know of a good site to order dried elderberries? i want to make an elderberry syrup to use thru out the winter, i usually buy the sambucol elderberry syrup and i swear by it for heading off colds thru out the winter, but it gets rather pricey, so i have a recipe for making my own but not sure where to buy some good dried elderberries?

I don't know what a good price is... <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=veggieboards.com-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2FASIN%2FB000FA1H8O%2Fsz-category449-20%2Fref%3Dnosim" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...9-20/ref=nosim</a><br><br><br><br>
I'd say google 'em. I'm trying to find fresh cranberries for juicing, but I may resort to ordering from the internet. I still don't know what a good price for those are, either.

Thanks for the link, I don't have a clue what a good price is either, the recipe i have calls for 1/2 C dried elderberries, 3 C water and 1 C honey ............not even sure how much syrup comes out of this recipe,<br><br>
i will have to figure it all out and compare if im even coming out cheaper,<br><br>
the sambucol is about $10 for a 4 oz bottle and between 4 people here we go thru it quick!

Mountain Rose Herbs has some organic elderberries too and they're a great company:<br><br><a href="http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/bulkherb/e.php" target="_blank">http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/bulkherb/e.php</a><br><br><br><br>
ETA: I take a capsule version of the dried herb and berry from Vitamin Shoppe when I begin to feel ill. It was about $5 for 100 "VegiCaps"<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
