“I have had trouble finding elderberries for several years. This last summer we were talking to a friend about elderberries and showed him a small patch near our house. He said he had lots of those plants at his place but never knew what they were.

“My husband went over and picked enough elderberries for me to make five batches of jelly! I was in heaven.” 

Elderberry Jelly

For juice:
6 quarts elderberries (about 3 pounds) 

Discard stems and crush berries. Place in saucepan. Slowly bring to boil until juice starts to flow. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
