Rhea’s Elderberry Syrup
A simple Elderberry syrup is perfect for the fall and winter seasons with changes in temperatures and shifting energy patterns can make us vulnerable to colds and the flu. Elderberries are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, potassium, Iron, and flavonoids.
To make the syrup, combine the berries and herbs with cold water in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow herbs to simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from heat and mash the berries in the liquid mixture. Allow to cool then strain the berries and herbs through cheesecloth and squeeze out the juice. Measure the liquid and add an equal amount of honey. Gently heat the honey and juice for a few minutes until well combined. Do not boil! Bottle in sterilized glass.
