This syrup is suitable for cold, cough and flu counter, but is also conducive to sweat. She is also antipyretic. Elder flower syrup also works mild diuretic and helps in the treatment of kidney and urinary tract infections, strengthens the walls of blood vessels, soothes headaches and migraines.

Preparation time 24 hours & 53 minutes ..Durability 1 year

INGREDIENTS .. 3 liters of syrup

  • 30 flower bunches of the elder
  • 2 liters boiled or filtered water
  • 2 kg sugar
  • 20 g of citric acid (1 bag Dr.Oetker)


Was the fragrant creamy white flower clusters in cold water and put them in a pot with water and citric acid. You can add some not treated lemon as well. Let infuse for 24 hours. Then strain the liquid through a muslin, stir in the sugar and bring to the boil. Solve all the sugar and continue to cook until the syrup thickens. Pour the syrup then into sterilized bottles, close them well and let cool.

To make the syrup I mostly use raw cane sugar because white sugar sticks to the intestines while raw sugar is easily degradable in the body. Only the color is darker with raw sugar. But it’s not that big of an issue.

Once the bottle is open keep it in the refrigerator. It’s perfect for several months.
