Yellow dock syrup! Amazing for iron and mineral supplementation, and works as a great digestive bitter. I added ginger to mine for some warming digestive soothing. Three times a day 1 spoonful! It lasts in the fridge for about one week. It is not shelf stable.
16 oz water
2 oz dry dock root 4oz fresh (I did 2 oz ginger fresh and 2 oz dock fresh)
4 oz molasses
Add chopped roots to water in a saucepan and simmer below boiling until water reduces to half. It took me just over an hour at medium heat.
Strain dock roots into a jar and add molasses while still warm.
Let cool and bottle up.
Store in the fridge for up to one week.
