Elderberry syrup is easy to make, delicious, and so good for you! It does need to simmer for a while and cool down for a couple of hours, so pick a time when you aren't rushed to make some yummy homemade elderberry syrup.
Combine water and elderberries in a pot over medium-high heat, stirring regularly. Turn heat down to a simmer once it comes to a boil. Do not cover.
Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring regularly. Remove from heat after the liquid has reduced by half, which should take 30-45 minutes.
Let cool to room temperature or just slightly warmer.
Pour elderberry juice into a bowl with a flour sack over it, squeezing out all the liquid. Mix in honey.
Store your elderberry syrup in a glass jar in the fridge, and use within 2 weeks.
