Elderberry Honey Syrup Ingredients 

  • 2/3 cup dried elderberries [OR 2 cups fresh elderberries]
  •  3 cups of water 
  • 2/3 cup of Honey

Yield 1 pint

Spice is Optional ~ Before boiling add the spices of your choice 1/4 teaspoon of ginger 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, or 2 cloves. Also consider Rosehips, Anise Star, or Echinacea.


Place the elderberries (and water if using dried elderberries) in a small saucepan. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently to reduce the liquid to half. *Strain seeds/pulp out, pour water over pulp if necessary to increase liquid to equal 1 1/3 cups juice. When it's warm but NOT hot, add 2/3 cup of honey. Refrigerate and use within 2 weeks. 

*For an easy way to strain elderberries check out my Elderberry Strainer Bag, you will wonder why you ever bothered with cheesecloth.

This a great product at a really good price...Fast shipping as well!


I bought all three flavors to try, so I could see which one I like the best. I didn't know it could be this difficult! All three are different, yet all three are great! I still haven't decided which I like the best. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Great product!

I received my order quickly, and I’m very pleased! It’s packaged well and the price is affordable.
