Hello Meredith! We pick ours when they are in season in Southern IL, which was about a month ago and I freeze then still on the stem. Then when needed I grab out a bundle and shake the frozen berries off to make syrup. When I haven’t picked them before I have bought dried from our local co-op. I’d just look for dried elderberries that that’s the only ingredient. Maybe check Azure if you don’t have a local co-op or health food store you trust. I’m actually going to be making a DIY video for how I make elderberry syrup soon! It’s on my list. And my recipe is in the Fruitful and Fearless cookbook if you need one. We use it on an as needed basis. When were sick we take about a Tbsp. every couple hours. If we are trying to boost our immune system we will take a Tbsp. or so everyday.
