HOW TO MAKE ELDERBERRY SYRUP

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. Simmer for about 45 minutes, or until liquid has reduced to about half its original volume.

Remove pot from heat. Mash the berries with back of a spoon or a potato masher to squeeze any juices out of them. Remove the cinnamon stick, and lemon half.

Discard (or compost) 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.

Pour into a large mason jar (or several small jars) and store in fridge. Can also store excess in the freezer until ready to use.
