    Elderberry Syrup Recipe

    7 cups elderberry juice
    8 ¾ cups honey
    3 cups 80 proof vodka

    (if you're starting with dried berries, to get "juice", put 1 cup of berries in a quart jar and pour 2 cups of boiling water over them. If they soak it up, add a bit more. Stash in the fridge or a cool, dark place for 24-48 hours.Then strain, and squeeze every bit of liquid you can out- you can twist the berries in a muslin towel and get most of it. You'll need three "jars" of the stuff to get enough for 7 cups. )

    Warm the elderberry juice to “hot, but not boiling” temp… between 150° and 180°F should be plenty. Stir in the honey and stir until it’s completely dissolved and blended.

    Remove from the heat, and stir in the vodka.

    Pour into sterile jars or bottles (sterilize them by boiling for 5-10 minutes in boiling water, then let drip dry upside down until filling)

    Cap and LABEL. Store in a cool DARK place (or bottle in dark brown glass)

    Standard dose for adults would be:

    Prophylaxis (prevention) 1 tablespoon (15 mls, or 1/2 ounce) 2x a day. If there is active flu in your office or family, double that, or take more often.

    Treatment: 1-2 tablespoons every 3-4 hours

    Children under 12: half the adult dose

    Toddlers and infants: Talk to your doctor! But, lacking that, 1 tsp at similar intervals to the adult dose should be adequate.

    There is NO way to overdose on this! Put it in juice, jello, pour it over ice cream- any way you can get the kids to take it is fine.

    If you do not want to use any alcohol in the syrup, use
    7 cups elderberry juice
    14 cups honey

    Proceed as above, ignoring the reference to the vodka.

    If you don’t want to use honey (probably best to NOT use it for babies under 1 year)

    7 cups elderberry juice
    11 ½ cups sugar

    Stir until the sugar is dissolved in the hot juice, then bottle.

    I am new to herbal medicine. What is this syrup for?

    Added note same site:

    "...Are Elderberries poisonous?

    Most species of Sabcucus berries are edible when picked ripe and then cooked. Both the skin and pulp can be eaten. However, it is important to note that most uncooked berries and other parts of plants from this genus are poisonous. Sambucus nigra is the variety of Elderberry that is most often used for health benefits as it is the only variety considered to be non-toxic even when not cooked, but it is still recommended to cook the berries at least a little to enhance their taste and digestibility..."

    There is also an excellent article on the Organic Prepper webite "...Elderberry Extract: Nature’s “Tamiflu...” I used the Elderberry Extract (got from Walgreens) with very good results during the Mexican flu epidemic - I'm one of those that don't get the flu shot.

    Another resource is the Kurt Saxon book 'Medicines like Granddad Used to Make' ( Your best chance, assuming you are not keen to pay Amazon an outrageous price, is via InterLibraryLoan or Link+ at your bigger public libraries, and xerox a copy.

    Hepatitis Treatment:

    Conventional antivirals are ineffective in treating hepatitis. The patient must rest for months. When the patient is able to eat, foods should include lots of fruits and vegetables and very little protein. Fruit and vegetable juices are excellent. Soups are also good. Protein makes the liver work too hard. Fats are to be avoided. No alcohol should be consumed for at least six months. In the conventional medicine world, there is not much to be done other than to keep the patient comfortable and help him rest. Most infections resolve within two to six weeks.[9]

    Alternative medicine options. The following herbs may be of help. They are not cures, but limited research has shown them to be of benefit.

    Hepatitis A, B, and C

    Barberry/Oregongrape [10]
    Chicory [11]
    Chinese skullcap [12]
    Licorice has been used for over 60 years in treating hepatitis C in Japan. It takes ten days to see results.[13]
    Milk thistle [14]

    Hepatitis B

    Japanese barberry[20]

    Hepatitis C
