In a large saucepan combine the water, elderberries, fresh ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce the heat to a slow simmer.
Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by half.
Remove from heat and allow to cool until just slightly warm.
Using a potato masher or wooden spoon, mash the berries to the bottom of the pan.
Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the berries and ginger from the liquid, pouring the syrup into a large bowl.
Stir in honey until fully dissolved then pour into 16 oz. glass jar or mason jar and store in the fridge.
