Sea Buckthorn: an immunity boosting berry

Sea Buckthorn berries are one of nature's gift to us for when we aren't in such good health or when we need an immunity boosting food.

The small and orange-golden berries have the highest amount of vitamin C among all known fruits, ten times more than citrus fruits. Besides the vitamin C that makes these berries a great antioxidant, they contain high proportions of vitamin A and B, E, P, K, F complex and minerals like Phosphorus, Magnesium, Calcium, iron, essential amino acids and Beta Carotene.

It's not only the juice inside or the oil that can be extracted thanks to the amount of essential fatty acids contained that make it a immunity boosting food but the peel and tiny seeds as well.

You can eat it as it is fresh and natural to get all the benefits, IF YOU CAN.

The Sea Buckthorn berries are extremely sour, the lemon is just a sweet candy compared to them.

So, here is an old recipe for conserving sea buckthorns and making it eatable as well: Sea Buckthorn and Honey.

Cook Time

How to prepare the sea buckthorn recipe with honey

  4. Place the jar in the fridge for 10 days.

      My brother grows this berry in his yard, it has a lot of little pointy spikes on it which deters rabbits out of the yard. I picked a whack of them last summer. I live in Carman, MB. You may just need to plant it yourself

      We grow Sea Buckthorn right here in Ontario, Canada! All the provinces can grow this miracle fruit!

      This is interesting. Learning to forage wild plants, including greens, fruits and mushrooms is definitely on my to-do list. Too bad Buckthorn berries are not found in North America.
