We had the opportunity to make Elderberry Syrup with 2nd and 3rd grade. We would like to say hisk’ʷuʔ and hišəbəʔ to all of our students.
Mrs. Barril shared one of her favorite recipes from another blog called Growing Up Herbal The link is for a recipe with many nutritious ingredients. You do not need to use this recipe. You could make Elderberry Syrup with just the same amounts of elderberry, water, and honey. You could also just add cinnamon, cloves, and ginger to the water the same time which you add the elderberries. There are so many variations. Please make sure that children one year and younger do not take the syrup if honey is added.
1/4 cup dried elderberries (I use ½ to 2/3 cup in this recipe as ¼ cup makes the syrup too weak)
