Homemade Elderberry Syrup

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the berries in a saucepan and cover with water.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer over low heat for 30-45 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Smash the elderberries well (I used a potato masher).
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer.
  6. Stir in 1 cup of honey (or more or less to your taste).
  7. Bottle the syrup and store in the refrigerator.
  8. Keeps for 3 months.

Notes

When making elderberry syrup it’s important to use only blue elderberries. Red elderberries are potentially toxic if eaten in large quantities. Never eat raw elderberries.
