This elderberry syrup uses whatever sweetener you want! Use arrowroot powder to make a healthy, thick, pourable elderberry syrup.
Combine dried elderberries and filtered water in a pot over medium-high heat until boiling.
Turn heat down to medium-low and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.
Let mixture cool, then strain out berries using a flour sack.
Return liquid to heat, and warm over medium heat. Whisk in arrowroot powder, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes or until desired thickness.
Store elderberry syrup in a jar in the fridge, use within 2 weeks.
