Elderberry syrup is filled with lots of Vitamin C.  Known to reduce colds and flu, take this syrup daily during the winter months. 

Elderberry Syrup For Kids

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of dried black elderberries
  • 4 cups of water
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh or dried ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup raw honey or maple syrup for children under 1 year

Instructions

  1. Pour water into a medium saucepan and add elderberries, ginger, and cinnamon. Do not add honey.
  2. Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half.
  3. At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled. Mash the berries carefully using a spoon or other flat utensil.
  4. Pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl.
  5. Discard the elderberries (or compost them!) and let the liquid cool to lukewarm. When it is no longer hot, add 1 cup of honey and stir well.
  6. When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, pour the syrup into a pint-sized mason jar or 16-ounce glass bottle of some kind.
  7. Store in the refrigerator.
  8. The standard dose is ½ tsp to 1 tsp for kids and ½ Tbsp to 1 Tbsp for adults. If the flu does strike, take the normal dose every 2-3 hours instead of once a day until symptoms disappear.
