A naturally sweetened Elderberry Syrup to use as an immune boosting supplement. NOTE: children under 12 months of age should not consume raw honey.
Place water, elderberries, cinnamon and ginger in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and place a lid on the pot so that it leaves a little crack for steam to escape

Pour syrup through strainer into a glass bowl, discard remaining elderberries. Add honey or monk fruit sweetener and stir well
Store in the fridge in a sealed container for up to three months. Mason jars work great.
