Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour


  • Rada Knife Set
  • Cutting board


  • 3.5 cups water
  • 2/3 cup dried black elderberries
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon or one cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp. echinacea root
  • .5 tsp cloves
  • 1 cup honey


  • Put everything in a small pot, except the honey.
  • Bring to a boil and then let simmer for about an hour, until the mixture’s consistency is that of syrup.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Strain the solids from the mixture in a mason jar, smashing the solids in your strainer to get all the juices out.

  • Personally, I take 2 tbsp. per day during cold and flu season.
