Elderberry Super Syrup Kit
Make your own organic Elderberry syrup and save money!
Organic elderberries, rosehips, ginger root pieces, cinnamon bark pieces, lemon peel, licorice root, marshmallow root, and cloves.
This is a single batch of syrup herbs and other ingredients. Below are the instructions included in package.
Add a bag of mix to sauce pan with 2.5 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Leave the lid on.
When cooled some, strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
If mixture is room temperature, reheat so that honey will incorporate. Add 1 cup of local honey and stir to dissolve. May add 1 - 2 Tablespoons of brandy or vodka if desired. ( I only use about 1/2 cup honey and it works fine. More honey means sweeter and thicker. )
Do not give honey to babies under 1 year of age. You can use maple syrup or cane sugar if needed.
Cover and keep in the refrigerator. One bag of mix with honey will make approximately 16 oz of syrup. Final quantity will depend on amount of honey used.
For daily use in cold and flu season
Children: ½ to 1 teaspoon per day.
Adults: ½ to 1 Tablespoon per day.
During illness, you can increase to every 2 - 3 hours
This MUST be refrigerated, and should be discarded after 3 months, so put a date on it.
I am not a doctor, and you must do your own homework. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Do not use if allergic to any ingredients.
