1/1 Photo of Elderberry Jelly
Version 2. From my files. I would do a hot water bath, not parafin to seal.. "The most common use of elderberries is for jelly-making. Their juice produces a clear, ruby-red jewel-like delicacy with a sparkling flavor to match."
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat the berries over a low fire until the juice starts to flow and then simmer the fruit for 15 minutes.
- 2Strain the liquid through a double layer of cheesecloth (easier if you cook the fruit in the evening and let it drain overnight).
- 3Mix the elderberry and lemon juices along with just enough water to make three cups of fluid.
- 4Add the pectin, bring the mixture to a boil and stir in the sugar.
- 5Bring the jelly to a full boil again for one minute, pour it into sterilized glasses and cover the jars with paraffin.
