Elderberry Syrup 

4 cups boiling water

4 tbl dried berries

4 tbl dried flowers

1. Put berries and flowers into quart jar.  Pour boiling water over them; put on lid.  Let steep 6-12 hours.

2. Strain through fine wire strainer (make sure to press out the liquid from the berries and flowers really well).

3. Pour mixture into pot and reduce over low-medium heat until the mixture is reduced by half.

4. Cool and mix in 1 cup honey.  Stir until honey is melted through.

5. Optional: Add 1/2 cup brandy and mix.

Store in closed quart jar in the fridge.  

This syrup is wonderful for the immune system.  

I also mix my tinctures with it to make them all a little more bearable.

 

I invite you to watch my video on how to make elderberry syrup. 

 

Give the syrup a boost by adding to the infusion:

A whole cinnamon stick

Whole cloves (about 7-8)

Dried Red Raspberry leaves (2-3 tbs)

Dried Eucalyptus leaves

Dried Comfrey leaves

Dried Echinacea

Wild Cherry Bark – helps with cough

Fresh Sliced Ginger
