- Combine elderberries, water, cinnamon, and ginger in a large pot and bring to a boil. (DO NOT ADD HONEY!) Reduce heat and allow to simmer (uncovered) for 35-45 minutes, or until mixture reduces by about almost half.
- Strain through a strainer or sieve into a clean glass container. Allow to cool until lukewarm.
- Once mixture has cooled, stir in raw honey.
- Store in airtight jar in fridge for up to a month. Or you can freeze in smaller batches to use throughout the winter. **see note
When freezing my elderberry syrup, I freeze it in LARGE ICE CUBE TRAYS before I add the honey. I defrost a small ice cube and add honey later.
