How to Make Elderberry Syrup?

To make eldeberry syrup, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • ¾ cups of dried eldelberries

  • 3 cups of water

  • 1 cup of honey

  • 1 teaspoon of cinammon

  • 1 teaspoon of dried cloves or 4 whole cloves

Making elderberry syrup at home can come in handy if you don't want to buy it from the store or if you want to try out new flavors.

The process of making it starts with boiling the eldelberries them in water along with the cinnamon, and cloves until the water starts turning purple - this takes around 10 minutes. Reduce the heat, cover, and let it simmer for 40 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half.

Afterward, allow the liquid to cool off and drain it.

Next, pour the berries in a food processor or press them with a wooden spoon to take the liquid out of them.

Lastly, add the honey (2-3 cups of sugar works well too) and mix it well.

The syrup can be stored in an airtight glass container for up to 2 months in the refrigerator or up to 8 months frozen
