Updated version of an elderberry syrup. This recipe takes an old recipe and completes the process using an Instant Pot. Elderberries are a good source of nutrients, which include vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, carotenoids, amino acids, and flavonoids. Elderberry juice is also rich in certain essential minerals such as potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and several anti-oxidants. I am not a doctor so any advise in this recipe if from research. Please do your own research before ingesting any new foods.Adults: Take 1 Tablespoon of syrup daily when healthy. Take 1 Tablespoon every 4 hours when feeling ill. Good for colds and flu.
fresh ginger (1 inch piece) cut into quarters
In the Instant Pot combine together the dried berries, cloves, cinnamon sticks, ginger and water. (Do Not add the honey at this time.)
Pressure cook on high for 15 minutes, then release pressure.
Remove lid and go into saute mode. Simmer for 15 minutes or longer until liquid is reduced by half. Stirring is not needed.
After the liquid is reduced, remove cinnamon sticks and mash berries with a potato masher or other instrument. Let cool to near room temperature.
Strain our the berries and pulp using a mess strainer. Into the juice mix in 1 cup raw honey. Stir until honey is dissolved and mixed well.
Put in air tight jars or bottles. Store in the refrigerator. I keep one of those little medicine cups near by as it's easier to dispense and not make a mess.
