Elderberry Syrup Recipe

Yield 2 Cups (1 Pint)

  1. Add entire contents of both the Organic Dried Elderberries (4oz) & Organic Chai Spice blend (1.5oz) to a large saucepan.
  2. Cover with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the liquid reduces by half.
  3. Pour the mixture through a Cheesecloth covered strainer over a bowl and mash the berries with the back of a spoon. Then, bring the ends of the cheesecloth together and twist to squeeze all the liquid.
  4. Discard used elderberries and spices. They make great compost!
  5. Stir in the Organic Cane Sugar while the liquid is hot.
  6. Pour into a pint jar and cover loosely with a lid until fully cooled. Tighten lid and store in the fridge.
  7. The sweetener will preserve the syrup and storing in the fridge prolongs the shelf life. Typically it will keep for 2-4 weeks, sometimes longer. Toss if any visible mold starts to form on the surface of the liquid.
