Elderberry Syrup Ingredients
This recipe makes a little more than a quart of Elderberry Syrup.
- 1 cup of Dried Elderberries
- 4 cups of Water
- 1/2 cup of Honey
- 2 Cinnamon Sticks
- 3 Cloves
- *Optional: 1 teaspoon of Ginger, Orange Peels & 1 Star Anise
*Note: If you were to buy this in the store - it's sold in little bottles (like the one pictured with the blue label) and they are small and a bit costly. The different brands also taste differently. In order to extend shelf life, they are made with alcohol. The first kind I bought tasted so strongly of alcohol that I was concerned about giving it to my son. So, by making it at home you are spending so very little, you control what you put in the stuff and you get way more for your money.
