As I squeeze the dark dripping liquid from the cloth, I’m reminded how much is truly at our finger tips. No matter how many times I make this syrup, I’m still so grateful to have learned how to do it myself. Adding potent ingredients & eliminating preservatives, creating magic for our bodies is one of my favorite things ✨
This big batch will serve our family for the fall & winter months. A tablespoon daily, a drizzle on breakfast and a dash in smoothies. Elderberry syrup is an herbalist’s staple. Today I simmered the elderberries with; clove, ginger, astragalus, echinacea, & cinnamon.
I even poured a wonderful elder sun tea, perfect for sipping over ice 💜
Have you tried a sun tea yet? It’s really easy!
Here’s what I did:
✨ 2 teaspoons of elderberries
✨ 1 teaspoon of elderflower
✨ small chunk of ginger
✨ 1 cinnamon stick
✨ large quart jar, fill with warm water
✨ allow to steep in the sunshine, soaking up those healing rays. I typically leave mine for about 2 hours.
✨ strain out the ingredients & keep your liquid elder tea in the fridge. Should last a couple days!
There’s so many ways to enjoy this immune boosting, virus fighting, Mother Nature medicine. Have you made anything special with your elderberries? Would love to try new recipes!
