Full Instructions:

*Make Your Own Elderberry Syrup*

Step 1) Add 1.5 – 2 cups of purified water to a medium-sized pot.

Step 2)  Place the bag of herbs into the pot of water. Cover.

Step 3) Bring to a slow simmer and continue to simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. Turn off heat and steep until cooled.

Step 4) Once cooled, SQUEEZE!! Be sure to wring the bag very well as to get all of the herbal goodness out of your herbs!

Discard or compost used herbal material.

Step 5) Very gently warm your liquid once more in your pot just enough to incorporate honey. Do not overheat. Add 1 cup (or more) of raw or local honey and stir until well blended. Remove from heat.

Step 6) Once cooled a bit, pour your fresh, potent herbal syrup into glass jars or bottles and cap tightly.

*Don’t forget to label with contents and the date!

(Optional: add 1 Tbsp of vodka or brandy per cup of finished syrup for extra preservation)

Step 7) Refrigerate and use as needed for colds/flu, cough, congestion, even allergies and tummy troubles.

Syrup will remain fresh and potent for 2 months stored in the refrigerator, even longer with a touch of alcohol added.

For best results, take one dose morning and evening for prevention and 4-6 times daily when ill until illness is resolved.
