Mitten’s Healing Elderberry Syrup Recipe

  • Author: Mitten Lowe


Healing and simple to make Elderberry Syrup


3/4 c. dried organic elderberries

3 c. filtered or spring water

1-2 organic cinnamon sticks

1 TB organic ginger, peeled

1 tsp organic whole cloves

3/4 – 1 c. organic raw honey



  • Order your elderberries ahead of time
  • In a large saucepan, bring the elderberries, cinnamon stick, cloves, ginger, and water to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low.  Allow to simmer for 50-60 minutes.
  • Cool the syrup base, but not completely.  Just enough to handle so that the honey will dissolve, but not so hot that you lose the raw benefits of the honey
  • Mash the berries with a fork while still in the pan.
  • Drain the liquid using a nut milk bag, cheese cloth, or fine mesh strainer.  Mitten prefers a nut milk bag.
  • Be sure to press all of the liquid out of the berries


For this recipe, you will need these tools: medium to large stainless steel stock pot, large stainless steel spoon, nut milk bag, cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer and measuring cups and spoons
