Elderberry Tonic Recipe

Posted By: Susoni
Date: Wednesday, 27-May-2015 14:48:57

In Response To: Spill-the-Beans Minestrone Recipe (Susoni)


Elderberry Tonic

Makes about 10 Pints

Ingredients:

12 cups Black Elderberries (Sambucus nigra), freeze first for more juice.
7 cups Water
1 1/2 cups Lemon Juice (6 lemons) Zest rinds and dry for other baking.
1/4 cup Ginger Root, grated (a thick piece about 1 1/2 inches long)
1/2 Cinnamon Stick, crumbled
1 teaspoon Cardamom, rough ground
1 teaspoon Whole Cloves


6 Allspice Seeds, rough ground
2 quarts Honey
2 cups Brandy

Put the elderberries, water, 1/2 cup of the lemon juice, ginger root, and spices in a heavy pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Turn heat down just enough to keep from boiling over and cook at least 40 minutes, stirring frequently.

Pour the entire mixture through paint filter bag set over a mesh
strainer. This will remove all the skin, spices and seeds. Use a big spoon to mash the pulp to get more liquid extracted. Finally, press pulp through a Ricer + Jelly Bag to extract the remainder of the juice.

Put the extract into a 2-gallon or larger pot. Check that temperature is no higher than 130F and stir in the honey and the rest of the lemon juice.

Prepare a Pressure Canner, pre-heat jars, boil lids, and gather rings.

Add the brandy to the extract mixture and immediately fill the canning jars. Bring the canner up to 5 lbs. pressure and remove from heat. If you do not have a pressure canner, process in a Water Bath, processing for 5 minutes after the jars have returned to boil. Remove jars, set on a towel and wait for all lids to “pop”, indicating that they have sealed.

Label clearly: "Elderberry Tonic - 1 T daily during flu season. With symptoms up to 5 T daily" Add date to label.

Good for immune functions. Take daily during flu and cold season. So far as I can tell, this is pretty similar to the very expensive Sambucol you buy at the health food store. But, sure tastes better!
