Using Elderberry Syrup is the best home remedies for cold and flu and works great for keeping your immune system strong, to fight off any germs you might come into contact over the next several months.
Place water, berries, cinnamon, cloves, ginger into a saucepan. Give the lemon a squeeze into the liquid then drop it in, rind and all. Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce heat to a simmer.
Discard the berry mash. Return the liquid to the saucepan and now stir in the honey. The pot and the liquid should still be just warm enough for the honey to easily incorporate into the liquid.
