How to Make Elderberry Syrup

This easy elderberry syrup combines the powerful antioxidant properties of elderberries with the warming spice of cinnamon and ginger. Add a dollop of raw honey and this syrup will help give your immune system the support it needs.* Easy to make and delicious for the whole family, this syrup stores for up to six months if kept in the fridge tightly sealed. But don't limit yourself to sipping elderberry syrup during sickness! This syrup is sweet, fruity, and versatile. Swirl it into drinks, blend it into smoothies, stir it into oatmeal, and drizzle it over pancakes. I enjoy it spooned over ice cream! The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
