Elderberry Syrup with Wild-Foraged Ingredients

As a passionate forager, I'm always on the lookout for ways to incorporate wild-foraged treasures into my recipes. One of my favourite creations is my elderberry syrup, which I've recently supercharged with a variety of powerful ingredients that not only enhance the flavour but also offer a wide range of potential health benefits.

My Spiced Elderberry Syrup is packed with nutrients and natural goodness. While I love to forage for these ingredients myself, I understand that not everyone has access to them in the wild. Don't worry – you can easily find dried versions of these ingredients online or at your local health food store.
