So many good things to make with elderberries – they can always be used in addition to blackberries or with apples in almost anything – for something a bit different try this Elderberry Marmalade
A dozen or so crab apples washed and quartered, placed in a pan with a inch or so water in the bottom should be cooked until soft.
Add to this the 1 1/2 lb elderberries, the juice of 2 limes and 3 oranges.
Remove the pitch from the rinds and mince the rind finely or whizz them in a food processor. Add the rind and 5 cups of sugar to the fruit mixture.
Bring to boil and simmer for approx 1 hr until it will set.
Pour into warm sterilised jars and seal.
