Elderberry Syrup

This is the Elderberry syrup we make in our “How to make herbal preparations” classes.

All these ingredients are available through Willow Health Food & Wellness Center. 

  • 1 cup fresh or 1/2 cup dried organic Elderberries (harvest blue or black, avoid poisonous reds)
  • 3 cups water
  • ½ cup raw local honey (You can add more or less. Make it to your taste.)
  • 1 organic Cinnamon stick, 3 organic Cloves, and organic Ginger (optional)

Place berries, water, and spices in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Smash the berries to release remaining juice and strain the mixture. Allow liquid to cool and stir in honey. Will last for 2-3 months stored in the fridge.

Elderberry syrup is excellent for fighting the flu and viral infections particularly of the respiratory system. It also tastes good on pancakes & French toast. Elderberries make a excellent wine as well as jam or jelly.
