Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh elderberries

  • 3 cups water

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 3 whole cloves

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 1 cup honey

Directions

  1. Place elderberries, water, cinnamon stick, cloves, and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes. Use a potato masher to mash berries to release juice; strain the mixture through a fine sieve, retaining juice and discarding the pulp. Let juice cool.

  2. Stir in honey until thoroughly combined and transfer to a lidded jar. Keeps in refrigerator 2 to 3 months.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute simple (sugar) syrup or agave nectar for honey, and 1/2 cup of dried elderberries for the fresh berries.
