Approximately 4 cups/lb.
2576-Bulk Hawthorn Berries, Whole, Organic, 1 lb.
These wine-red berries are often used to make baked goods, jams and jellies. They are also found in tinctures, teas, smoothies and punches.
1/2 cup dried Hawthorn Berries OR 1 cup fresh Hawthorn Berries
2 cups distilled water
1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger
1/2 cup raw honey
In a pot, add the water, hawthorn berries, and ginger. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer until the liquid reduces by half. Using a potato masher or the back of a fork or spoon, mash the berries to draw out more of the juice. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Add one cup of honey and stir to combine. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. This syrup will not last as long as an alcohol tincture or glyceride and is not shelf stable but is a great alternative for those who are looking for an alcohol free recipe that is easy to make.
