Yesterday, after school, we went up into the mountains to forage elderberries, to make elderberry syrup, with my friend and foraging-guide, Mrs. B.


Such a lovely day. 

Today I will boil down the berries with water, fresh ginger, peeled and cut into one inch chunks, cinnamon sticks, rose hips from my rose bush, and some vanilla bean.  When it is reduced and syrupy I will let cool, strain, and add raw honey.  Then bottle it all up.  Yum!  Who knew medicine does NOT have to taste yucky.  

Here is a link I found about the nutrient profile of elderberries:
