We have never had a product so loved as Berry Well®! Its simple yet incredibly effective ingredients have made it the stuff of legend among our Beeyoutiful families and customers. It is by far one of the most convenient and effective ways to utilize the incredible properties of a variety of ingredients that work together synergistically.
Beeyoutiful® is now offering a way for you to create your own homemade elderberry syrup so that you have an affordable and effective recourse should Berry Well be unavailable, or if you have a large family and stocking up on Berry Well in sufficient quantities isn't an option for your budget.
It is more work to create your own elderberry syrup, and it doesn't taste exactly like Berry Well, but we have saved you some steps and made it as convenient as possible by combining most of the must-have ingredients into one discounted package. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you have created an amazing health-supporting product for you and those you love with your own two hands.
Each Elderberry Syrup Starter Kit contains enough supplements and primary ingredients to make a minimum of 4 quarts of homemade syrup (with some ingredients left over). Feel free to tweak the recipe below based on your individual family's needs and taste preferences.
Each of Beeyoutiful®'s Homemade Elderberry Syrup Starter Kits contains 1 box of Traditional Medicinals Echinacea Tea, 1 bottle of Bee Immune™, 1 bottle of Gentle C, and 1/2 lb. of dried organic Elderberries. You will need to source raw unfiltered honey (preferably from a local apiary) and raw apple cider vinegar to round out the ingredients list.
Beeyoutiful®'s Homemade Elderberry Syrup Recipe
Makes 1 Quart
You will need:
1 cup boiling water
4 Echinacea teabags
6 capsules of Beeyoutiful's Bee Immune (Bee Propolis)
1 cup Unfiltered Local Raw Honey
1/2 cup dried elderberries
2 cups water
4 Tablespoons Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
6 capsules of Beeyoutiful's Gentle C
Step 1: Add 4 teabags to 1 cup of boiling water and cover. Allow to steep until slightly warm, 30 minutes or more.
While teabags are steeping, place 2 cups of water and dried elderberries in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower temperature and cover so that it remains at a gentle simmer. Allow it to simmer together for at least 30 minutes. Berries should be soft and easily mashed.
Remove tea bags, squeeze and set strong tea aside. Step 4:
Once berries have finished simmering, remove from heat and allow to cool. After cooling, pour juice through a fine mesh strainer into a wide mouthed quart jar. Use a spatula to move berry pulp around, making sure every last bit of the juice is extracted.
Open capsules of Bee Immune and Gentle C into the still-warm echinacea tea and use a whisk to blend in.
Add tea mixture to quart jar of elderberry juice. Add cup of honey (gently warmed to make pourable, if necessary) and then 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar. Cap tightly and shake well to mix all ingredients.
Shake well before serving. Can be stored in recycled Berrywell bottles for easier serving or kept in larger quart jar. Will stay good refrigerated for up to 6 months. Feel free to substitute any ingredients or customize in any way that is best suited to your particular needs.
Keep stored in refrigerator. Do not serve to babies less than a year old.
Adults: take 1 tablespoon as often as needed.
Children 4 years old and older: 1 tsp. as often as needed
For children 1 to 4 yrs old: 1/2 tsp
