Elder Rob

Drinks

Highly sweetened elderberry syrup, sometimes with spices, "very good for sore throats and fevers." (Eaton 1822).


Manchester Mercury - Tuesday 25 August 1778



Original Receipt in 'The Cook and Housekeeper's Dictionary' by Mary Eaton (Eaton 1822);

ELDER ROB. Clear some ripe elder-berries from the stalks, bake them in covered jars for two hours, and squeeze the juice through a strainer. To four quarts of juice put one pound of sugar, and stir it over the fire till reduced to one quart. When cold, tie it down with a bladder, and keep it in a dry place. It is very good for sore throats and fevers.
