Elderberry-Ginger Syrup

By December 8, 2016 Blog, Recipes One Comment

I am so grateful to find Norm’s Farms Elderberry products.  This Elderberry-Ginger Syrup has become one of my go to immune boosters.  There are so many uses for this syrup.  Some of my favorite recipes are:

Hot Tea: add 1/4 Cup of Elderberry-Ginger syrup to 4 oz hot water and a slice of lemon.

Elderberry-Ginger Sparkler:  Pour 1/4 Cup of Elderberry-Ginger syrup into a glass of ice, fill with sparkling water, stir, and garnish with a lemon slice (if you add a shot of Vodka, I’ll never tell).

Elderberry-Ginger Syrup
 
This syrup is fantastic when added to hot water for a cup of tea or ice it down in the warmer weather. I've mixed it with club soda for a sparkling refresher (if you add in some vodka I will never tell) . It makes a lovely mimosa, just add a tablespoon with a glass of champagne. One quarter cup of this syrup per day gives you a daily dose to boost your immune system!
Ingredients
  • 4 Cups of Water
  • 4 Tablespoons of Honey, plus more to taste*
  • 1 - 2 - 3" Knob of fresh Ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Lemons, Washed and Sliced
  • ⅓ Cup of Elderberry Extract
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan and bring the water and honey to a simmer until the honey is dissolved. Add the sliced ginger and lemon, turn off the heat and let the mixture seep in the saucepan until it cools to room temperature.
  2. Strain the mixture into a quart jar and refrigerate. The syrup will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

    My Mother was born in Germany and remembers taking Elderberry when she was sick. She gave my brother and I elderberry when we were will. I have it in my home now.
