Elderberry syrup recipe

1 cup dried elderberries or 3 cups fresh elderberries
6 cups cold water
1 few inches fresh grated ginger
3 cinnamon sticks
About 1 cup honey
(optional: orange peel, thyme, cardamom, star anise, black pepper)
Put all ingredients except for the honey into a large pot. Bring to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer.
Simmer it for at least 2 hours. I usually let mine sit for 8-12 hours to cool and continue to steep. When it’s cool, strain the solids out from the liquids.
Measure the liquids (it should be about 3 cups. Put the liquids back in a pot on medium heat, add 1 cup honey. Warm long enough for the honey to fully dissolve into the elderberry decoction.
When it’s fully dissolved (usually about 10-15 mins), let cool again and store in
bottles in the refrigerator. It will last about 18 months if refrigerated.

Because The Herb Hub is relationship based, we are always asking Hub users what they want to see.

We discovered several barriers that limit people's access to herbal medicine: high costs, long distances to herb stores and lack of educational resources.

Because of this feedback, we've started to grow our resource library so people can learn more about using herbal medicine. We pay teachers for their time: in-person workshops help us learn and connect in real time, while virtual classes can live on as recorded webinars in our library. We also have a number of books and written documents.
