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.

Wonderful experience. Shipping was so fast. Communication was great, and the berries were just as I’d hoped. Thank you!

We've ordered Shannon's berries twice now. They're beautiful and clean, nothing to be wasted, arrived packaged well, makes a lovely syrup. She includes recipes to follow, tea samples and makes spice packs and strainer bags available,. Most importantly, her pricing is affordable. She provides much needed information about elderberry uses thru newsletters and info on the website..We don't order from anywhere else.. Also, in this time of slow deliveries, our order arrived quickly.. Thank you Shannon.. offering peace, love, healing and blessings..
