Make an immunity-boosting kombucha, and your future self will thank you! I am a big proponent of the regular consumption of elderberry syrup to improve immunity. Elderberries are full of vitamin C and are a good source of antioxidants. You can even make one kombucha bottle of this during your regular flavor process.
Simply throw a few dried berries into your kombucha bottle during the flavoring process. Be sure to add a little sweet support from ginger and honey to aid in the fermentation process. Personalize this with a clove, candied ginger (as shown in the photo), anise, lemon juice …let your imagination run wild!
- Elderberry – dried berries (6)
- Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tbsp)
- Local honey (1 squirt)
You may want to skim this one before drinking – the elderberries aren’t the tastiest to eat ????
Interested in learning more about elderberries? Make sure you’ve looked at my DIY elderberry syrup recipe.
Just like kombucha: When you make elderberry syrup at home, you can really customize it to your tastes. For example, sometimes, I omit the cinnamon and add rosehips, lavender, dried lemon balm, or lemon verbena from my garden ????
