Pour your water in a medium saucepan and add your elderberries. Be sure not to add honey at this point.
Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to low/medium and simmer until the liquid is reduced by almost half.
Remove from the heat, and pour through a strainer into a glass bowl. Allow to cool to lukewarm.
Add the honey and stir well to combine.
Once mixed thoroughly, pour into a 12 oz mason jar or glass bottle and store in the refrigerator (covered of course). Remove when needed to administer to family/children.
Discard the elderberries and use in your compost. If refrigerated, this syrup should last several months.
Kids under the age of 1 year should not consume raw honey.
