- Elderberries are dark purple fruits with a sweet-tart, fruity flavor. They make tasty, winter cordials, teas, syrups and wines. Elderberries contain bioflavonoids and vitamin C. The dried berries can be reconstituted and used in jams and jellies. Elder berries are used in herbal syrups, tinctures and teas blends. Like elder flowers, the berries make a soothing, heat-clearing herbal tea. Elder berries are also often made into a cordial or a syrup. For tea: pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 tsp. of herb, cover and steep 3-5 minutes.
