    Thanks, @Acequiamadre! When I signed up, a form popped up where I could ask a question, so I asked:

    "Does boiling elderberries for syrup destroy the vitamin c content? Does adding rosehips and hibiscus to boiling water destroy the vitamin c content?"

    ...which is technically 2 questions but about one subject: heat and the destruction of vitamin c.

    And I am curious as to why she asks "Is it still safe to use elderberry?" in the description above!

    Rosalee's webinars are always full of great information.

    @Sydarta I'll let Rosalee answer the Vitamin C question.

    The elderberry question is there to answer any concerns people may have over using elderberry because of some controversial information that came out a few months ago. It suggested that elderberries could possibly creating a cykotine storm which is an over stimulation of the inflammatory processes. I think Rosalee will point out the error of that idea.

    @torey I had not heard about controversy/rumor of elderberries possibly creating a cykotine storm. Interesting. I will look forward to her discussion. Love her classes and webinars

    @torey thanks for answering the elderberry question, I had not heard of this! I am interested to hear her elaborate on that subject, and hopefully she will answer the vitamin c question. Every day I drink about a half gallon of herbal tea and elderberries, rose hips and rosella hibiscus are often in the mix so I am curious as to how much of the c is intact after steeping.

    @Sydarta This is a link to an article that might shed some light on steeping of hibiscus. It seems that a 10 minute steep has more vitamin C than a 5 minute or 15 minute steep in general. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Ff_Olayemi/publication/265233359_Effects_of_Boiling_Time_on_Mineral_and_Vitamin_C_Content_of_Three_Varieties_of_Hibiscus_sabdriffa_Drink_in_Nigeria/links/59f1dd8caca272cdc7d0054c/Effects-of-Boiling-Time-on-Mineral-and-Vitamin-C-Content-of-Three-Varieties-of-Hibiscus-sabdriffa-Drink-in-Nigeria.pdf

    Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin so it leaches out into the cooking water when preparing vegetables.It will be interesting to get Rosalee's take on whether the simmering is a high enough heat to destroy the Vitamin C content or if the Vitamin just leaches out into the syrup.

    @torey  She did point out the error of the elderberry/cykotine storm.

    I just added hibiscus and rose hips to my fire cider (the hibiscus idea was from the Fire Cider book). I will know how it turned out in a few weeks! I wonder how the vinegar impacts those two items.

    The webinar was thorough and I liked her health wheel that addresses stages of sickness and remedies that are useful at each stage.

    Good to have these days!
