  • Bring water, Elderberry Crystals, ginger, and cinnamon to boil in a pot. Let it boil for 30 seconds or so, then cover and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and let this sit, uncovered, for one hour.
  • Scoop out cinnamon sticks and ginger. When completely cool, stir in honey (optional: stir in Acerola Powder now).
  • Pour into a sterilized glass jar, seal, and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. Alternatively, pour into an ice cube tray and freeze, giving you elderberry syrup ice cubes you can pour hot water over for a quick cold remedy.
