You also get the satisfaction of knowing you have created an amazing health-supporting product for you and those you love with your own two hands.

Each of Beeyoutiful®’s Homemade Elderberry Syrup Starter Kits contains 1 box of Traditional Medicinals Echinacea Tea, 1 bottle of Bee Immune™, 1 bottle of Gentle C, and 1/2 lb. of dried organic Elderberries. You will need to source raw unfiltered honey (preferably from a local apiary) and raw apple cider vinegar to round out the ingredients list.

 You will need:
1 cup boiling water
4 Echinacea teabags
6 capsules of Beeyoutiful’s Bee Immune (Bee Propolis)
1 cup Unfiltered Local Raw Honey
1/2 cup dried elderberries
2 cups water
4 Tablespoons Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
6 capsules of Beeyoutiful’s Gentle C
Step 1:  Add 4 teabags to 1 cup of boiling water and cover. Allow to steep until slightly warm, 30 minutes or more.IMG_9530
Step 2: While teabags are steeping, place 2 cups of water and dried elderberries in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower temperature and cover so that it remains at a gentle simmer. Allow it to simmer together for at least 30 minutes. Berries should be soft and easily mashed.IMG_9537

Step 3: Remove tea bags, squeeze and set strong tea aside.

Step 4: Once berries have finished simmering, remove from heat and allow to cool. After cooling, pour juice through a fine mesh strainer into a wide mouthed quart jar. Use a spatula to move berry pulp around, making sure every last bit of the juice is extracted.IMG_9573

Step 5: Open capsules of Bee Immune and Gentle C into the still-warm echinacea tea and use a whisk to blend in.IMG_9548

Step 6: Add tea mixture to quart jar of elderberry juice. Add cup of honey (gently warmed to make pourable, if necessary) and then 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar. Cap tightly and shake well to mix all ingredients.IMG_9583

Shake well before serving. Syrup can be stored in repurposed Berry Well bottles for easier serving or kept in larger quart jar; it will stay good refrigerated for up to 6 months. Feel free  to substitute any ingredients or customize in any way that is best suited to your particular needs.IMG_9611
