    dicentra's Note:

    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."

      In the 7 years I've been living here on the ranch, I've watched the deer attack the elderberry trees that grow wild all around here. This year decided I wanted to find out (never had them before) what all the excitement was about so had DH collect some berries and tried this one out. WELL, I can tell you from now on those deer are going to have competition as this jelly is awesome; a combo of sweet and tart that I think is going to be a favorite from now on. I used the very small 4 oz jars as wanted samples for this and got 11 jars. I did the water bath as don't know how to do the paraffin and think that's for the best.
