  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup dried elderberries
  • 3 Tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon clove
  • 1 cup raw honey


  • 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. 


If using fresh berries, you will need to use more. 
Stir in the honey when the mixture stops steaming, but is still warm. 
Store sealed in an airtight container in the fridge.
