Elderberry syryp is fantastic "food as medecine" for cold and flu prevention and treatment. Children over 1 take 1/2 - 1 tsp daily, adults 1/2 - 1 TBSP daily for prevention. If flu/cold does strike, increase the frequency to every 3-4 hours for the duration. 


Raw/manuka honey is a great antibacterial, but the amount can be reduced for less sweetness.

    I was excited to find a Thermomix recipe for Elderberry Syrup!
    Thanks for the brilliant recipe - it worked out perfectly (although my hands are stained purple/black from wringing out the nutmilk bag whilst straining the liquid, lol).
