Ingredients for basic recipe:
3 cups filtered water
1/2 cup organic elderberries (Sambucus nigra)

Return to the rinsed out pot. Add honey. Warm on low and stir until honey is blended in.
Jar and keep in the refrigerator. Should last for 2 months.

Ingredients for Basic Recipe:
1 part grated organic horseradish root
1 part crushed organic garlic
1 part chopped organic onion
½ part grated organic ginger rhizome
Dash of Cayenne pepper
Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Glass jar with non-metallic lid or wax paper lined canning lid
Grate or finely chop the horseradish root and ginger rhizome. Chop the onion and garlic. Put in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid (vinegar reacts with metal so make sure if you use a canning jar that there is wax paper between the lid and the liquid).
Shake it up and give it a taste. Add cayenne peppers or powder to taste,
Let sit in a dark cool area for 4 weeks. Strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth or muslin and bottle for use!
