  • Put your elderberries, cinnamon and water into a pot.
  • Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 1 hour. You are looking for the liquid to reduce by almost half.
  • After it has reduced, remove from burner to let cool.
  • Strain out berries and cinnamon sticks.
  • Pour honey into the jar in which you are going to store your syrup. When syrup is cool enough to touch (not cold, but not too hot) add to honey.
  • Stir until mixture is blended.
  • Store in refridge!
