Cooking elderberry syrup before canning.

Elderberry, cinnamon and honey combine for this soothing elderberry syrup for kids.


  • 1 quart elderberry juice
  • 2 cups honey
  • 2 sticks cinnamon


  1. Sterilize three 16-ounce jars, keep hot. Heat lids and rings in hot water, keep warm but not boiling. Fill water bath canner and bring to boil.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive pot. Heat and stir until all honey is dissolved.
  3. Bring to boil and boil for ten minutes. (This infuses the flavor of the spices into the syrup.)
