Main Ingredients

1 cup of dried elderberries

5 cups water

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1 cup raw honey


1Measure out 5 cups of water into a medium saucepan and add dried elderberries and spices.

2Bring to a boil and cover and reduce to a simmer for 45 minutes to an hour.

3Turn off heat and let cool slightly. Using a spoon or masher, mash the elderberries carefully then pour through a mesh strainer into a bowl. Discard the berries.

4Once liquid has cooled to "warm", add 1 cup of raw honey and mix well.

5Store in a quart size container in the fridge and you're done!

6Recommended daily dose for prevention is 1 teaspoon for kids and 1 tablespoon for adults. If you get sick with a cold or the flu, take recommended dose every 2-3 hours.

Additional Notes

Instant Pot option: Put ingredients (minus honey) in pot, seal lid, and set manually for 9 minutes on high pressure. Vent pressure, gently mash, then strain. Add honey once liquid is at room temperature.
