Elderberry Jam

jamFrom: The Regal Elder Part II by Kristen Rasmussen Vasquez

A great way to quickly preserve the flavor of elderberries for later use on toast or in desserts.

Makes 4 half-pint jars

4 cups fresh elderberries
3 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 half-pint Mason jars, sterilized

Bring ingredients to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Continue boiling, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes until mixture reaches 220° or when jam falls in a “sheet” when spoon is removed. Pour evenly into jars and seal.
