  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Remove and discard large stems from elderberries. Crush fruit thoroughly; place in saucepan. Cook on medium heat until juice starts to flow, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 min., stirring occasionally. Place 3 layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. (If necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water for exact measure.) Stir in lemon juice.
  • Stir pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to Measure Precisely

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cup, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This a tried and true elderberry jelly recipe. This a tried and true elderberry jelly recipe. I"ve used it for years and year. So imagine my surprise when I opened the box and it was missing from the list. I am so glad I could find it online, as this was my Christmas gift to my Aunt. It is her favorite and with my grandmother gone I am the only jelly maker in the family.

I had saved an old recipe from an older box because you weren't putting it on you insert sheet but I lost it and came to computer to find it. I've made it for years all my kids and grandkids love it. My husband goes every year along back roads to pick them. He has his own places and he has to beat the birds.

After seeing the Elderberry was gone from the instructions, I used the blackberry instructions. The measurements aren't exact, but the jelly turned out great. When you use wild fruit, some adjustments need to be made. I have never seen elderberry jelly in a store for sale, so it is a prize!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but Lemony Everything went well, the juicing, boiling, setting. I excitedly tried it the next day and was overwhelmed by tart lemon flavor. There was a hint of the wild elderberrys that I had picked, but a strong lemon flavor. I was going to use this for gifts. Darn! Perhaps 3/16 of a cup of lemon?

Every year I seek out trees on back roads to pick from. It's the best jelly. Makes a great Sunday morning surprise with fresh biscuits.
