Oh Elderberry, why did I ignore you my whole life?
Recently I started coming to back to the healthy berry called Elderberry to help aid in building my immune system and others to protect us from this terrible flu session that we are having.
Elderberry is broken down into a syrup or juice to help to build immunity against influenza or boost to help get rid of the flu faster. It also helps with sinus pain, back and leg pain, your nervous system and chronic fatigue syndrome. It’s also used for making wine and a food flavoring but this is a whole other use!
I got my dried, organic Elderberry on Amazon and created the syrup from there. I also added cinnamon and honey. Clove and ginger can also be added to boost digestion and more immune supported properties.
So, how do you make Elderberry? Below is the recipe and this can stay in the fridge up to two weeks. Some also freeze the syrup but make sure to research how to do this properly.
Enjoy and get ready to boost your immune system!
You can add 1/2 teaspoon cloves or clove powder or 2 Tablespoons fresh or dried ginger root before boiling.
You can also make this in small batches too!
