The fastest method for making a batch of elderberry syrup, which only takes a minute or two compared with the hour or more required when making traditionally from dried or fresh elderberries.
Mix elderberry juice and raw honey until thoroughly blended.
Pour into small amber bottles with a tight-fitting lid.
Substitute maple syrup or date syrup for the honey for children under age 1.
If using raw honey, the syrup will be good to use for several months refrigerated. The raw honey acts as a natural preservative.
If using maple or date syrup, the syrup will be good to use for about 1 month refrigerated.
Freeze what you will not use in that time.
