This is the 1st time I've ever made my own elderberry syrup but I decided to give it a try when all my family was keeping this lingering respiratory crud. It was super easy to do, directions were on the package. It took a lot longer than what I thought because the directions say to be careful and not let it get to dry as it could burn, not sure who those directions are for because you simmer with the lid on and it took a long time for the liquid to decrease by half. Anyway it turned out well, doesn't smell the best (I thought with the cloves and cinnamon it would be this wonderful smell) but all my family says it taste like cough syrup (they like that taste). They've just started taking it, we'll see how it works, hopefully as well as it was easy to make.
This was so easy to make. I used local raw honey. The directions are written down Barney style on the back of the packaging. It took my stovetop about 2 hours for it to simmer down about halfway. My girls drink their 1tsp out of a shot glass filled with pineapple juice. They ask for it every day because they love it.
I really like that it is so simple to make this. Everything in one pack. I also like the clove and cinnamon. I’ve had Elderberry syrup with it and without it. I prefer with the cinnamon and clove. When mixed with my own local honey, it made exactly 18oz. I will certainly buy again!
Was looking to buy a pound of elderberry for $27 not including everything else. Being that this was my first attempt in elderberry syrup, when I came across this I thought it was perfect. So glad I found it
