How to make elderberry syrup

October 18, 2009 § Leave a comment

Making your own elderberry syrup is painfully easy. You get yourself some elderberries and get it to boiling, simmer for 30-45 minutes, smash the berries, strain the whole thing and add raw honey to taste.

You could just buy it and that would be great but I tried doing that and for one, it’s pricey; two, it’s just too sweet for us. I think also some other ingredient in it that keeps it from spoiling makes it distasteful to bilingual baby.

We call our elderberry syrup Purple Juice and she loves it! I doubled the recipe I found here and only added about 1/3 cup of honey. It’s perfect!

If you already make your own purple juice, how do you change up the recipe or do you leave it as is?
