🧊 How To Freeze Elderberry Syrup

These are the instructions to freeze homemade elderberry syrup. Syrup that has been pressure canned or pasteurized may have different instructions. Homemade elderberry syrup lasts up to one month in the fridge and up to six months in the freezer.

1️⃣ Let it cool: You want to make sure that the syrup is fully cooled before freezing. This will ensure that the items in your freezer stay at a safe temperature.

2️⃣ Pour into a silicone ice cube tray: Place the silicone ice cube tray on a baking sheet. Then, pour the cooled elderberry syrup into each divet. You can use any silicone tray you desire. I like using ones that have each part as one tablespoon. That way I know exactly how much I have and how much I want to defrost when needed.

3️⃣ Freeze overnight: Add the tray to the freezer to allow the cubes to completely freeze overnight until solid.

4️⃣ Add to a freezer-safe bag or airtight container: Once frozen solid, pop the cubes out and place them in a freezer-safe plastic bag or airtight container for up to 6 months.

5️⃣ Thaw and enjoy: When you’re ready to use the frozen syrup, pop the cubes into a mason jar with a sealed lid and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Give it a good shake to redistribute the ingredients and flavors and enjoy!
