Elderberry Tincture

Elderberry Tincture

Elderberry Tincture

Herbal Remedies

The cold seasons have begun, so we wrap up warm and strengthen our immune system. Vitamin C is an important part in this. Using fresh and very local produce we made this Elderberry Syrup & the Tincture. We have two huge elder trees and a few smaller bushes growing on our land so there is always plenty for us and the birds as well.

You can also use dried or frozen elderberries for these recipes. They are simple and easy to make, contain the goodness of elderberries, honey and lovely wintry spices for a delicious taste!

Syrup

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup black elderberries
  • 3½ cups of water
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh ginger root, cut into small pieces (dried ginger works as well)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder or 2 cm cinnamon stick
  • ½ teaspoon cloves or clove powder
  • 1 cup raw honey (from health food shop, farmer’s market, bee keeper)

Instructions

  • Pour water into medium saucepan and add elderberries, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Do not add the honey!
  • Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until the liquid has reduced by ca. half.
  • Remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled.
  • Pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl.
  • Discard the elderberries (suitable for compost) and let the liquid cool to lukewarm. When cooled down, add 1 cup of honey and stir well.
  • When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, pour the syrup into one or more jars.
  • Keep in the fridge and take daily for its immune boosting properties.
  • Standard dose is ½ tsp to 1 tsp for kids and ½ tbsp to 1 tbsp for adults. In case of acute flu, take the normal dose every 2-3 hours instead of once a day until symptoms disappear.

Tincture

Ingredients

  • Elderberries, fresh or frozen
  • Vodka or Rum

 

Instructions

  • If you’re using frozen elderberries, remove them from the freezer and let them thaw a bit.
  • Fill up a jar or bottle half way with elderberries.
  • Add the liquor but leave about 1 or 2 inches at the top.
  • Keep in a dark and cool place for 4 – 6 weeks and gently shake every day.
  • Strain and fill into a clean bottle.
  • Take 1/4 tsp in some water once a day as a preventative and 1/2 tsp in some water twice a day when you’re ill.
