Pair them with antioxidant rich Aronia Berries though and you have double the fighting power. Not to mention the sweet flavor that comes with it. This spoon full of honey infused goodness will help prevent colds and flus along with making them disappear faster if you catch them.
Prep Time: 00:00
Cook Time: 00:00
1/2 cup dried elderberries
1/2 cup dried aronia berries
6 cups filtered water
1/8 cup cut & sifted astragalus root
1/8 cup cut & sifted echinacea root
1/2 cup dried orange peel
1/2 cup dried rose hips
1 tablespoon cinnamon bark chips
1 tablespoon dried ginger root
1/3 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1 cup local raw honey
1Bring 3 cups of filtered water, 1/2 cup of aronia berries, 1/2 cup of elderberries and all of the dried herbs to a boil in a medium sauce pot on the stove.
2Once the herbs and berries are boiling, turn down the stove to bring the mixture to a simmer.
3Simmer the herbs and berries about 30 minutes or until reduced to half.
4Strain the berries and herbs from the mixture using a fine metal sieve and unbleached cheese cloth making sure to carefully remove all of the juices. Sometimes a metal potato masher can help remove them without the mess of the juice and getting burnt from the heat of the herbs.
5Once strained let cool to room temperature.
6After the mixture has cooled to the touch and is no longer hot, add 1/3 cup of raw apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of local raw honey.
7Whisk in well or use an immersion stick blender to incorporate the honey and vinegar well.
8Store in a quart size mason jars in the refrigerator for daily use (1 tablespoon per day for adults). Increase the frequency of use when fighting a cold or flu to 1 tablespoon every 2 hours until symptoms subside.
