Elderberry Syrup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
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'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.
