⚠ It is very important to remove the water from the fruit, to avoid fermentation.
Hawthorn fruits are put in a jar, without being pressed. ⚠ I chose to use the whole fruits with all the seeds, but they can be removed and even more, the fruit can be crumbled / minced / chopped / mixed for a more mix well with honey.
Add the honey over the hawthorn fruits, little by little, patiently, until it drains well between the fruits and until it covers them. ⚠ If the seeds have been removed, it is recommended to mix with a wooden spoon. ⚠ In the case of whole fruits, you will notice that they will easily rise to the surface..
Hermetically close the jar with a lid or food foil and all that remains is to let it soak.
It is left to macerate for at least 2 weeks, in a cool, ventilated place away from light, possibly a refrigerator. → During the maceration it is good to shake the jar daily to ensure the complete fusion of the hawthorn fruits with the honey. → During the maceration, you will notice how the honey becomes more and more liquid, practically the nutrients from the hawthorn fruits will be transferred into the honey.
After maceration, the hawthorn honey syrup can be filtered or consumed as is, with fruit. After opening, the jar should only be kept cold, tightly closed, until it is completely consumed. We will do the same if we have filtered and have the hawthorn syrup.
→ This maceration/mixture is also called hawthorn honey or hawthorn candy with honey. → Maceration of hawthorn in honey is an excellent alternative to hawthorn tincture, for those with alcohol restrictions. → Honey is a preservative and depending on where we will keep this maceration, we need more or less honey. If we want to keep it in slightly cool places (cellars) we can add up to 4 parts honey. Depending on the amount of honey and the validity of the maceration differs. → It is recommended to avoid frequent contact with air and light as much as possible, to avoid oxidation.
Storage and validity: → It will be stored in glass containers, hermetically sealed, protected from light, in the cold, ideally in the refrigerator! → If not opened, a jar can be kept in the fridge for ~6 months! → From opening, it is recommended to consume max. 3 monthsand will only be stored in the refrigerator until completely consumed.
→ It is recommended one tablespoon 3 times a day, preferably 30 minutes before meals. The spoon will contain both syrup and 3-4 hawthorn berries. The seeds can be thrown or swallowed. → One or more 4-week cures are recommended, with breaks between cures of 1-2 weeks. → For children under 12, it is good to ask for the doctor's recommendation (in general, the dose is halved for them)! → NOT recommended for children under 3 years old!
