27 Mar 2020 Elderberry Syrup by Abby | posted in: Uncategorized | 2 A mostly visual guide to making your own elderberry syrup at home. You might choose to halve the recipe, or double it, depending on your needs. Slow simmer until you have reduced your liquid by about half. I use a wood popsicle stick as a rough gauge. Once reduced, let it cool down so it’s not hot hot, and mash strain, and then mix in your raw honey And bottle. Enjoy!
