"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."

minced fresh ginger root
I'm giving this 5 stars for the medicinal value alone and was tasty, but with that said I thought the honey was a bit overpowering (for me.) That's easily fixed, I will use less honey next time or half honey and corn syrup. If you're looking for a thick syrup- this isn't. I added a cornstarch slurry. The ratio is 1 teas cornstarch to 1 Tb. cold water per cup of berry liquid; add to hot mixture and cook a bit. I also added 1 to 2 tb. fresh lemon juice, thought it gave another flavor element. I enjoyed some of the syrup in my lemonade, sort of took on a gourmet flavor and a beautiful color. Really liked the optional spices when added.
I thought the honey was a bit overpowering and will use about 1/2 the amount next time. I made a double batch and had to simmer it for about an hour and a half to get it to reduce down to half. I've been giving each of the kids about a tsp each day and taking a Tbsp for myself. Lets hope it keeps the colds and flus away!!
I think this receipe is great! The only thing I changed is 1/2 cup of honey is plenty.
