  • 1 pound dried Whole Organic ElderBerries
  • 20 cups filtered water
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger powder or 1" piece fresh ginger root
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 cups (16 oz) raw honey (or more to taste)
  • 1 small lemon juiced
  1. Combine all ingredients except honey in a large soup pot and bring to a rapid boil. Once boiling, cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour.

  2. Remove cover, raise heat to medium and continue cooking uncovered until reduced by about half. This should take approximately another hour.

  3. Remove from heat and use a mesh strainer to drain liquid into a glass container.

  4. Allow to cool to room temperature, whisk in raw honey until fully dissolved and add lemon juice. We tend to like mildly sweet things so if you need this sweeter, add more honey and adjust as desired.

  5. Transfer to glass storage containers (mason jars, etc.) and store in the refrigerator.

Individual Serving Size is 1 teaspoon per day for children or 1 tablespoon per day for adults. Recipe Makes Approximately 8 cups or 384 teaspoons.
