3/4 Cups Dried Elderberries
3 Cups Water
4-10 Whole Cloves (Depends on your affinity to clove)
1 Cinnamon Stick
1″ Fresh Ginger, Peeled or 1/2 tsp Ginger Extract (I’ve been using about 1 tsp Ginger Extract)
3/4 Cup Raw Honey
To a medium saucepan, add first 5 ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove from heat and strain using a sieve getting as much juice out as possible with the back of a spoon.
Add honey to large jar and slowly add slightly-cooled elderberry and spice infusion. Stir until fully combined.
Yields about a fat 2-cups.
Studies have suggested that Elderberry syrup may help reduce the length of influenza and boost your immune system. I like to take a tablespoon a day, but while sick, it may be taken several times a day (up to 4).
