easy elderberry syrup recipe: cooking with elderberry tonic
Just a spoonful a day of Elderberry Syrup is all it takes to support a healthy, resilient immune system. And straight by the spoonful we highly suggest! It’s why we created our recipe to be uniquely delicious — sweet but not syrupy, tangy but not too sour, and packed with herbs.
Beyond that daily spoonful for wellness, we happen to also highly suggest culinary creativity with your Elderberry Syrup. From desserts and drinks to glazes and dressings, there are endless ways to mix your immune support into your favorite dishes (and share with others)!
During the spring, we naturally find ourselves gravitating again to all things green; fresh salads and sauteed greens are on the menu daily. So naturally, Elderberry Syrup finds itself in the mix.
This recipe has quickly become our favorite, especially mixed into bitter greens – whether that be sauteed dandelion greens or a fresh arugula and radish salad. Our bodies crave a hint of bitterness in each meal at springtime. It’s a long forsaken flavor that awakens our digestive system and taste buds, stimulating our processes of detoxification. We need to taste that bitter flavor to benefit from it, and tossing those flavorful greens with a good dressing is a great way to make them not only palatable but crave-able.
Enjoy this creative dressing, make it your own, and let us know what you think!
