Waste not, want not. Why waste all those beautiful elderberries after you make your elderberry syrup? Use them again by enjoying elderberry tea.
Boil 8 ounces of water.
Place 2 teaspoons of the organic elderberries into the water.
Let sit 4-15 minutes depending on desired strength, add more elderberries if you'd like it stronger.
Since this will only use two teaspoons of your wet elderberries at a time, you can dry the used elderberries to keep using them as tea. You have two options for drying your berries.
Drying Your Elderberries
Take the elderberries and place them in a dehydrator and dehydrate them until dry.
Spread the berries across a jelly roll pan (the type with short edges) and turn your oven to its lowest setting. Heat the elderberries until they are fully dry and store in a mason jar.
