Elderflower Berry Juice the drink the gods brought to Austria to make sure energy is always available in the mountains

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup dried elderberries
  • 3 1/2 cups of water
  • 2 Tbsp fresh or dried ginger root
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp whole cloves or clove powder
  • 1 cup raw honey

Directions:

  • Pour water into medium saucepan and add elderberries, ginger, cinnamon and cloves (do not add honey yet, because the heat will destroy many of its medicinal benefits)
  • 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 almost half.
  • At that point, remove from heat and let cool enough to be handled
  • Pour through a strainer into a glass bowl
  • Discard the elderberries and let the liquid cool to lukewarm
  • When it is no longer hot, add 1 cup of honey and stir well
  • When honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, pour the syrup into a pint sized mason jar or 16 ounce glass bottle of some kind (I used an old dressing bottle)
  • Store Homemade Elderberry Syrup in the fridge, it will last several months!

Elderflower Berry Juice Tea:

Pour in 250 milliliter of Elderflower berry juice into a one liter thermo bottle together with 750 milliliter of boiling water. Shake it well and bring it to the hunting area… May the force be with you! 😉
