Sea Buckthorn Berries

I use sea buckthorn oil as a night cream. I combined it with some almonds oil and it is doing miracles to my skin.

There are two ways I like to eat sea-buckthorn berries. I like to juice them and combine them with honey. My advice, if you have over 500g of sea buckthorn berries, is to juice some of them and drink right away, add the rest in a few jars with honey, and freeze the remaining to juice later.

Don’t forget to add some honey or any other healthy sweetener in the juice. These berries are really sour!

    I have almost a forest of these trees near me at the seaside and have also bought two for my garden – the grey leaves are so beautiful against the orange berries and apparently make a good tea? We visited the Viking Ship Museum in Denmark and they are served in the cafe there as apparently they were well loved by the Vikings.
    However, I want to make a curd or compote to fill some layers in my daughter’s wedding cake. I have several full branches in the freezer. All the bought versions are much too sweet, the manufacturers overcompensate by adding far too much sugar for the delicious punchy tartness. Any suggestions as to ratios to get a nice punchy flavour please Gourmandelle?

    1. Ruxandra

      Hi Dawn! Yes, seabuckthorn leaves are great for tea. You can also dehydrate the berries and make tea with them. It’s delicious! :) I never used them in desserts so I cannot recommend you anything. But you can give it a try. Taste and test. Hope it will turn out great! :)

    Thanks for all the info people. My sister planted a couple of trees given to her several years ago and this year I noticed she as berries. This “Vitamin Bomb” as peaked my interests in more ways then one. I have few questions…. Is it just a mixture of honey and berries? If so what is the ratio or do I just sweeten to taste? Would water in the jar with the honey and berries lessen the effects of the berries.

    A Newfoundlanders Curiosity.

    1. Ruxandra

      Yes, I usually mix the berries with honey because they are so tart! The ratio depends on each person’s preferences. I prefer it with less honey and more berries. I wouldn’t add any water though, only if they are consumed quickly and/or kept in the fridge. If you store them in honey, you can keep them for even a year in the pantry! You can also juice them :)

    Hy! Just discovered your blog and I must admit, I am pretty amazed! A wonderful job! As for buckthorn berries, yes, they are wonderful for our health. I am eating each morning buckthorn berries with honey, lemon and a bit of ginger. Great!

    1. Gourmandelle

      Thank you Roxana! I’m really glad you like it! Love the ginger combination and I think I’m gonna try it myself 😀 My frozen sea buckthorn berries stock is finished and can’t wait to find them again at the farmers market :)

    These fruits are amazing! For few years I had serious problems with my throat, fever and even temporarly loss of voice.I tried all types of antibiotics and injections with no results. 2 years ago a doctor which has a lot of experience told me about the fact even she works in a hospital at the Infectious diseases while tooking a teaspoon of Sea Buckthorn Berries with Honey every day she never took any disease from the patiences she takes care for years.

    Since then I didn’t had any serious flu nor get ill! I used to prepare also tea if you dry the fruits and branches to keep over the winter.

    If you want to be sure that you will be healthy don’t hesitate to try these amazing fruits!

      It’s great to find out that doctors prescribe natural remedies to their patients. Few doctors are like that.

      One of my friends caught a bad cold a couple of weeks ago. I told him not to take any meds and I treated him naturally. Sea buckthorn with honey, hot teas and inhalations with essential oils. He was as good as new after just a few days! Nature is amazing :)

    My Mum used to make me drink a shot glass full of juice as a kid – without sweetener… It took me over thirty years (!) to overcome that trauma :)
    So everyone: make sure you sweeten these things!!! If you do, they have a great, unique flavour – and I can testify that my immune system is great :)
    How to get them: Here in Bavaria, but this tree is really common along rivers – so even if I’ve never seen them at a market, it just means taking a short autumn walk next to a river and I’ve got enough for the year. (Since the river paths usually are not private property anyone can take the berries.)

    Great advertisement of these wonderful vitamin-packed berries!
    They are rather popular in my country (Latvia) and I guess they also grow in other northern countries. But they are eaten little because they are really sour. They are also very hard to pick because of the sharp thorns. Normally you don’t eat them fresh but you should… if you could! :)
    I make jam with these berries and it is really really delicious. Super healthy, fragrant and beautiful!

    1. Gourmandelle

      Thanks Baiba!

      Yes they’re really sour! But combined with honey they’re perfect! I never made jam but I tried a store-bought one and it was delicious! I know they’re hard to pick..that’s the reason why it’s almost a miracle when I find them at my local farmer’s market.

      Hope to find some more. I’d love to make jam too. I’ll ask you for the recipe :)

    1. Gourmandelle

      Thanks Julia! These berries are usually found in Europe but not necessarily. They usually grow spontaneous as they’re wild berries. Try looking for them online. You may not find them fresh but you can find sea buckthorn oil, syrup or dry sea buckthorn berries, which are great also!

  13. Gourmandelle

    It's great that you have a sea buckthorn tree! Sea buckthorn berries are sour but if you mix them with honey or any other natural sweetener the taste will no longer be a problem; their juice will taste like lemonade combined with orange juice, so it is quite pleasant.

  14. Toby

    I've read somewhere that the sea buckthorns are a bit tarter than goji… do you find that to be the case?..

    At any rate, its gotten me to buy my own tree…. thanks!
