It’s time to collect Elderberries and make something fabulous to enjoy over the Winter months – Here Linda shares her Elderberry syrup recipe which she uses to pour over her morning porridge / overnight oats as well as enjoying as a drink diluted with some water..
8 x 1 1/3 cups of elderberry
8 tablespoons of ginger
8 1/2 teaspoon of crushed cloves
8 teaspoon of Cinnamon (full bottle)
5 jars of raw honey
I did 8 cups of water but would reduce this to maybe 6
Steam the berries in order to soften and squeeze juice out
Add the above ingredients (except honey)to the squeezed juice
Bring to the boil and let simmer for about 45 mins/1 hour.
Sieve into clean pot and let cool
Add Honey and stir well
Put into waiting sterilised jars (to sterilise stick them in the oven on low heat)
