"This recipe is good for treating colds and the flu, and good on anything you would put syrup on, like waffles, pancakes, or ice cream. You may try blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries for different flavors."

  • Ready In

  1. Place elderberries, water, cinnamon stick, cloves, and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Use a potato masher to mash berries to release juice; strain the mixture through a fine sieve, retaining juice and discarding the pulp. Let juice cool.
  2. Stir in honey until thoroughly combined and transfer to a lidded jar. Keeps in refrigerator 2 to 3 months.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute simple (sugar) syrup or agave nectar for honey, and 1/2 cup of dried elderberries for the fresh berries.
