How to Make Blackcurrant Syrup

Wash the ripe blackcurrants very well but gently, so they remain intact. In a large glass jar, layer them alternately with raw honey – a half-finger thick layer of berries and a finger-thick layer of honey. Seal the jar and keep it in a cool place for two months. After this time, strain the content through cheesecloth so you squeeze all the healing blackcurrant syrup out. This blackcurrant syrup is usually a natural immune-boosting medicine that you have available in the mid-autumn season, right when viral infections, whooping coughs, and bronchitis season usually start.

According to the forefathers of natural medicine in Europe, Sebastian Kneipp, blackcurrant syrup is a healing elixir for the throat and the upper respiratory tract.

3 Health Uses of Blackcurrant Syrup

  1. Chronic Fatigue and Mental Overload – if you experience mental overload or burnout, blackcurrant syrup is especially recommended – 1-2 teaspoons when experiencing dizziness, drowsiness, and inability to focus. Or drink 1-2 cup of blackcurrant juice a day for at least a week.
  2. Sore Throat, Coughs, Hoarseness, and Tonsillitis – blackcurrant syrup has a double effect: on the one hand, it acts directly on pathogens, destroying them and “repairing” the damaged tissues, and on the other hand, it increases long-term local immunity, preventing further illness. You can have up to 8 teaspoons of blackcurrant syrup per day. Take it without water, and swallow extremely slowly, so that the currants can act on the affected area.
  3. Bronchitis, Pneumonia, and Tuberculosis – blackcurrant juice has particularly effective immunostimulant action, alongisde exceptional vitaminizing and remineralizing effects. Take 3-4 tablespoons, five to six times a day, over a long period of time. If you do not have enough fresh berries to prepare this juice, you can continue supplementing with blackcurrant powder or take blackcurrant syrup.
