Elderberries are one of the most effective remedies for viral and bacterial infections such as colds and flu and can substantially shorten the duration of your illness if you get sick. The Elderberry Syrup recipe I have to share with you is as clean, simple, and healing as it gets, with none of the preservatives or additives you might find in some store bought brands. It’s also sweet and delicious, making it a fantastic remedy that even children will enjoy and take willingly.
Elderberries contain special proteins and bioflavonoids that have the ability to destroy viruses on contact that infect cells in the body. Elderberries are also known to have the ability to significantly enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines in the body. In addition, they are very beneficial for bronchial and respiratory problems and can help loosen and expel congestion in the lungs.
Elderberry syrup is also rich in vitamin C and a wealth of other critical vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and many nutrients undiscovered by science and research.
3/4 cup dried elderberries
3 cups water
3/4 cup raw honey
1 cinnamon stick
1 whole star anise
¼ tsp whole cloves
Place the dried elderberries and water in a medium-sized saucepan (with optional spices) on the heat. Cook on medium-high for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until thick and reduced by half. Remove and cool completely. Strain the syrup into a bowl, pressing the juice out of the berries with a wooden spoon and discarding the whole spices. Whisk in the raw honey and pour into jars.
For health maintenance, enjoy 1 tablespoon per day. For assistance in recovering from a cold or flu, enjoy 1 tablespoon 3 times per day.
Makes: 1-2 cups
