Instant Pot Elderberry Syrup

Since becoming a mom of two and sending our toddler to preschool I try to do as much as I can to prevent sickness from spreading in our house. That is when we started using Elderberry Syrup. My husband and I usually only take it on an as need basis but I give my son Elderberry Syrup every day.

Elderberry Syrup is known to:
– Reduce Inflammation
– Reduce Cold Duration
– Fight the Flu

At first I was buying Elderberry Syrup. If you want to buy it and don’t want to make your own here is what we used: Organic Elderberry Syrup
But I wasn’t a fan of the other ingredients listed and I found that it was cheaper to make my own. So below you will find an easy and fast way to make your own elderberry syrup.

Make your own Elderberry Syrup:

Ingredients:
– 1 cup of dried elderberries
– 3 cinnamon sticks
– 4 cups of water
– 1/4 tsp of ground cloves
– 1 tbsp fresh ginger/ or ginger cut into 1/4
– 1 cup raw honey

Instructions:
1. Place Elderberries, cinnamon sticks, water, ground cloves, and ginger into the Instant Pot.
2. Put the lid on and turn nob to SEALING, Set Instant Pot to manual for 12 minutes.
3. Once the pot has finished turn to QUICK release, then turn on the sauté function for an additional 10 minutes.
4. Turn off your instant pot and grab a potato masher; Use this to get additional syrup out of your elderberries. Then poor through a strainer, make sure all berries are removed and keep only the syrup, discard the rest of the ingredients.
5. Wait for elderberry syrup to reach room temperature and add 1 cup of raw honey.
6. Store in your refrigerator. I like to store mine in a mason jar.

Recommend Dosage:
Daily Maintenance: Adults; 10mL/day Children; 5mL/day
Intensive Use: Adults; 10mL/4xday Children; 5mL/4xday
If you have any questions regarding the use of elderberry syrup of course consult you doctor first.
