In getting prepared for winter, one of my projects was to make Elderberry & Echinacea syrup. Here's how:
1/2 cup dried Elderberries
3 Tbsp Echinacea
5 cups distilled water
2 1/2 cups local honey
Allow to cool & bottle.
Could anything be easier???
I added a 1/4 cup of brandy to the brew as a preservative. It will keep for a few months in the refrigerator, and longer in the freezer. This recipe made 3 bottles, so 2 now live in the freezer.
