Instructions
  1. Add the berries, water, cloves, ginger and cinnamon stick to a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the berry mixture to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. After 30 minutes, remove from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash the berries (still in the now juice mixture) to remove any extra juices.
  4. Smash and think of the savings in the pot.
  5. Strain the berries from the juice. I use a cheesecloth and small mesh sieve over a bowl. Push the berries in the strainer down with the back of a wooden spoon to remove any extra juice.
  6. Stir in the honey. The berry mixture should still be warm, not hot, and just slightly warm.
  7. Keep in the fridge. Take 1 tablespoon daily by spoon or mix it in a smoothie.
