This Saturday, Making Elderberry Syrup Class!

There’s still room in this Saturday’s Making Elderberry Syrup Class!

In this class we will be making our own Elderberry Syrup.

Elderberry Syrup is one of the most esteemed cold and flu remedies in herbal medicine.

Elderberries are known for their fabulous immune-enhancing properties. They are also antiviral and have been known to reduce the duration of flu symptoms to mere days. They are also excellent at clearing mucus from the sinuses and reducing inflammation in the respiratory system.

Elder flowers are an excellent diaphoretic, meaning they help induce sweating, which helps the body reduce fevers.

Combined with raw, local honey and other excellent immune-enhancing, anti-viral, warming and calming herbs like Echinacea, Ginger, Cloves and Chamomile you can make an excellent syrup that even the most finicky people in your life will willingly take.

My husband and I are in the latest edition of Edible Northeast Florida Magazine!! And we’re so excited!! 

Yesterday, we got our copy of Edible Northeast Florida Magazine to see that we made the cut! We had been contacted by them in December to do a photoshoot on backyard chickens, and were excited to see how our little urban homestead and our beautiful hens would be portrayed!

Well, it came out lovely! We are so excited to be representing sustainable, backyard, local food systems in our community. And I love that my husband, Lang, grabbed the pitchfork for a modern take on the famous “American Gothic.”

All the ladies, except Marigold, got a cameo. They’ve been well rewarded for their modeling skills with grub worms, sunflower seeds and scratch!

At The Manifest Nest we do more than just herbs. We believe in sustainable health not just from herbal support, but from food as medicine.

Today, we will be at the Beaches Green Market with lots of lovely herbal support. After a few freezes we will not have any garden produce today, but we will have a fresh batch of Fire Cider Tonic and Fire Cider Tonic Especial, fresh batches of Immuni-Tea and Inner Peace Tea and lots of other goodies to keep you happy and well as the weather changes and our bodies adapt.

The Beaches Green Market is today, Saturday 1/20 from 2-5pm at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach. We will have extra copies of Edible Northeast Florida as we always do, even when we aren’t in it, so come on by and say hello!
