Elderberry syrup

Put ripe elderberries into a large saucepan with half their volume of water. Simmer and stir for 20 minutes. Allow to cool, then squeeze out the juice using a jelly bag or fruit press.

Measure the juice, and for every pint of juice add half pound muscovado sugar, a stick of cinnamon, a few cloves and a few slices of lemon. Simmer for 20 minutes, then strain and pour while hot into sterilized bottles.

Dose: Take 1 teaspoonful neat every few hours for colds and flu, or use it as a cordial and add boiling water to taste for a hot drink.
