Sea Buckthorn berry has a tart flavour but these recipes allow you to have the benefit of Sea Buckthorn in a tasty way.
The simplest way to enjoy Sea Buckthorn berries is to add them to your morning porridge. You can take them straight from the freezer and stir them through – be prepared for the porridge to acquire a bright orange colour from all those healthy beta carotenes! Or you could add the oil as a drizzle across the top.



  • 500g frozen Sea Buckthorn berries
  • 100g of sugar or 100ml maple syrup


Place the berries in a heavy bottomed pan, and bring to a gentle boil.

Allow to cool, then pour the juice out of the pan through a sieve.

Place the berries, a few at a time, into a muslin or clean tea-towel and squeeze the juice out.

You should be left with about 400ml of juice.

Discard the pulp (or use it to make Sea Buckthorn tea!)

Scald out a jam jar as you would if making jam.

Return half the juice to the pan and add either 100g of sugar or 100ml of maple syrup / honey.

Keep it over a low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring all the time, so that the sugar dissolves and the syrup doesn’t catch on the bottom.

Once the syrup has thickened then pour into the prepared jam jar and when cool it can be stored in the fridge.

Of course, you can double up the quantities to use all the juice.



  • 1 litre of juice
  • 1.5kg of jam sugar
    (Make sure you have the scalded jam jars ready)


Put the juice and jam sugar into a heavy bottomed pan

Bring the mix up to a vigorous boil – take care when stirring that the bubbles exploding don’t catch your hands – keep the boil going for 10 minutes or so

Then reduce the heat so that you have a rolling boil, still stirring all the time so that it doesn’t catch

When the drop test works it’s ready to jar up


The berries are pectin rich, so the jam should set easily when it is in the jars, and you can enjoy it on your toast, scones or in jam tarts as you wish.



  • 750 g sea buckthorn fruit
  • 6 l of water
  • 1 kg of sugar


Add the berries to your favourite smoothie mix. Straight from the freezer throw them into your blender, drink and enjoy! Or prepare the juice as above in the syrup, but stop at the juicing stage and drink it as it is, or with a little sweetening if you wish.

If you have pulp left from juicing, you can use it as the basis for a refreshing tea. Put a teaspoon or two of the pulp (according to strength wanted) in to a diffuser in a mug and add boiling water. Allow to brew for 5-6 minutes and add honey, maple syrup or sugar as required.



Add the berries to your muffins and cakes as you bake in place of other fruits, such as blueberries. The juice will give a glorious orange tinge where the berries have exploded during baking.

Add some berries to a carrot cake to really enhance your Vitamin A and beta carotene intake!



  • 150 g chopped fresh fruit
  • 150 ml of sunflower oil


For 3 weeks, keep the vessel at room temperature and shake several times a day. After this time, crush the grains and put them back in the oil. Leave it in the light and in a warm place for another two days and then carefully transfer the top of the oil to another bowl, which is clear. It is good to use glassware. The remaining borhot can be dried and used to prepare the vitamin infusion. Sea buckthorn oil is indicated in the prevention of premature aging, in oncological diseases, in the treatment of skin diseases (external use), irritations caused by burns, sunburn, exposure to toxic substances. Hard-to-heal wounds are covered with poultices soaked in sea buckthorn oil and rapid healing is observed.



Place the sea buckthorn berries on a tray. Heat the oven to maximum temperature, insert the fruits to withstand a short thermal shock of 100 degrees. Then the temperature drops to 50-60 degrees. When the fruits are dry, remove and leave to cool. Finely grind and store in glass jars. The powder is good for tea: a teaspoon of powder is scalded with a cup of boiling water. Allow to infuse, then drink. As effects, we mention the increase in appetite, resistance to physical and intellectual effort. It has an anti-constipating effect.
