  1. Elder Berries

    Elder Berries

    Designation: Absolutely Organic
    Item Order #: T135

    The Elder is a legendary tree, considered magical and sacred in folklore and myths. Some herb manuals refer to it as the medicine chest of the country people.

    The Elder tree produces creamy-white flowers in late spring which give way to bunches of juicy, purplish black berries in early autumn. Birds love Elderberries and will eat entire crops if given the opportunity, so harvesting must be done quickly.

    Today, Elderberries are prized for making juice, pies, desserts and, of course, they make a great fruity tea, hot or cold.

    Chaste Tree Berries

    Designation: Absolutely Organic
    Item Order #: T114

    Chaste tree berries are also known as vitex or "monk's pepper." Vitex "trees" grow from 3 to 18 feet high and produce dark purple aromatic berries about the size of peppercorns that smell and taste like fresh ground pepper.

    The ancient Greeks thought vitex encouraged chastity, so leaves of the plant were strewn on couches associated with Demeter, the goddess of agriculture. As this legend was passed on, monks would carry the leaves in their pockets to assist in their vows of celibacy.
