I am slightly allergic to Elderberry sap, but it doesn’t stop me from making Elderberry syrup. This recipe has ensured that I make at least a batch every year. Three tablespoons of syrup mixed with a glass of water is amazing! Citric acid is a powder can be bought in drugstores and is used to remove scale in coffee makers and electric kettles.
With the prolonged winter, the elderberry flowers are just starting to bloom. My gloves will come out of hiding, and syrup-making season has arrived this year at last! And for people in tropical countries, your local IKEA should be selling them 🙂
