elderberry medicinal syrup
a recipe by
Live Oak, FL
This is my first time making this and the ginger and cloves along with the cinnamon make it taste really good. I have read that this is for cold-flu-sinus-aches and pains-etc. I for one will be using this to see.It is like sambucol sold in the drug stores they say for a whole lot cheaper and you control what goes into your medicine as well.Hope you will try this.

How To Make elderberry medicinal syrup
1Berries could be fresh if you have them or dried etc.
2Put everything except the honey into a medium pot and bring to a boil the turn down and simmer 30 minutes
3You will see the liquid gets reduced by almost half.Pour into large sieve and use a fork or potato masher or whatever you have to mash juice from berries.Throw away pulp.
4By now the juice is lukewarm so stir in the cup of honey. Makes about 3 cups or 3/4th of a quart jar. Says it will keep a week in refrigerator or to pour into ice cube tray and freeze into cubes for freezer bag storage for 6 months time.I will cube freeze mine and put cubes into smaller baggies and then into a gallon freezer zip-lock storage bag.As you take one tbsp at a time for adults or one tsp for kids(not babies)due to the honey.
