DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the berries over a low fire until the juice starts to flow and then simmer the fruit for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the liquid through a double layer of cheesecloth (easier if you cook the fruit in the evening and let it drain overnight).
  • Mix the elderberry and lemon juices along with just enough water to make three cups of fluid.
  • Add the pectin, bring the mixture to a boil and stir in the sugar.
  • Bring the jelly to a full boil again for one minute, pour it into sterilized glasses and cover the jars with paraffin.
