This is my submission of completion for "PEP BB medicine.sand.elderberrysyrup - Make an elderberry syrup"
I used this recipe from Wellness Mama to guide me: https://wellnessmama.com/1888/elderberry-syrup/

I was inspired by these permies threads and borrowed some ideas like adjusting the cooking heat to simmering instead of boiling:

- https://permies.com/wiki/133915/Elderberry-Book-Forage-Cultivate-Prepare

I intend take 1 tbsp of syrup every other day. I enjoyed making this elderberry syrup, and I think I will continue to make it. I foraged these elderberries in Western Washington, and I believe they are the blue elderberry variety.

Nicely done! Could you add a line about dosage or how to use the elderberry syrup to your journal. That way it meets this requirement

a picture of your journal page about your recipe and dosage information for elderberry syrup.



Thanks!
