What do I do with Elderberry Syrup?
a few ideas...
Add to Yoghurt
Scoop up a bowl of your favorite plain yoghurt.
Then drizzle on a tablespoon or so of elderberry syrup and top with a little granola, cashew nuts or flax seeds.
Make Elderberry Soda
This couldn't be easier. Combine fizzy water + about 2 Tablespoons of elderberry syrup.
It's incredibly beautiful and refreshing.
Make Salad Dressing
Combine equal parts
- oil of your choice (we like avocado),
- apple cider vinegar
- elderberry syrup.
Give it a good stir or shake and dress your salads, pour on a grain bowl or use as a marinade for meat or fish.
Make a Cocktail
Give your martini a health boost by adding a splash of elderberry syrup. Or try this Vodka Collins recipe.
With fresh or frozen Elderberries you can make
- 1.5 cups fresh elderberries
- 3/4 cup filtered water
- 1.5 cups blueberry, grape, cherry or apple juice
- 3 teaspoons pectin (we like Pomonas)
- sweetener of choice, to taste.
Bring berries, water and juice to a boil.
Remove one cup of mixture from the heat, add pectin and sweetener and stir until smooth.
Return to the pot and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat and stir for ten minutes until it starts to thicken up a bit (it will start to cling to the spoon).
Remove from heat and pour into canning jars. Keep refrigerated. It will thicken up as it cools.
