If you can make a cup of tea, or drain the water off a pot of pasta - - you can make your own elderberry syrup and save $ compared to the cost of a commercially prepared syrup! :) All you need is a pot with lid or a strainer, some water, a clean jar, and real honey.
Bring 3 cups of fresh water to boil in a pot. Add entire contents of Elderberry Syrup Kit to the pot and reduce heat. Simmer for 30 min. Mash. Strain & collect liquid (approx 2 cups). Allow liquid to cool till warm. Add 1 cup of Canadian honey & stir till dissolved. Pour into a very clean/sterile glass jar & store covered in the fridge for 4-6+ weeks. Shelf life may vary depending on storage conditions.
Traditional preventative usage indicates 5mL/day for children 1+yo & 15mL/day for adults. Frequency of use may be increased during times of illness.
If you wish to make this for infants between the ages of 6mo and 12mo please use maple syrup instead of honey.
This kit may also be used as the basis for a homemade tincture, glycerite, or oxymel, or the syrup can be used as the basis for gummies.
