I am making Elderberry Syrup for Winter. The scent of cloves, cinnamon and ginger are permeating the whole house - wonderful!
I was given this recipe so don't know who to attribute it to.
Fork elderberries from stalks, then hand pick off any remaining tiny stalks, none should remain. Pick out any green berries then place berries in a pan. Cover to 1cm above the berries, bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes:
Strain through a sieve lined with muslin or hang from a net and strain into another pan or large measuring jug:
For each 1 pint of juice add 1/2 lb sugar, 12 cloves, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or half a stick) and 1 teaspoon ground ginger:
Sieve into a muslin lined jug to remove any whole spices. Add 1 tablespoon of Brandy per 1/2 pint of syrup. This is my own addition as I find it not only adds to the taste but helps it store longer:
