In this post we'll share how to make elderberry syrup with fresh or dried elderberries or elderberry juice. I noticed years ago that the ingredient lists on most commercial elderberry syrups for kids doesn't contain much elderberry. Now we make our own so we know it's the real deal. Studies have shown that elderberry syrup helps treat the flu virus. (See more information on those studies at the end of the post.)
