elderberry jelly (syrup)

My MIL gave us a quart jar of an elderberry jelly gone awry this weekend. THey made a double batch and the jelly didn't gel properly so it's more like syrup. it's REALLY sweet...kind of an acquired taste. I've been told it's quite the health tonic...anyone else make elderberry _________ ?

I've read about wine, brandy, syrup, and jelly - all supposedly spike the immune system for flu and colds...i'd guess it would make one heck of a cough syrup too...it's pretty thick. Good on toast...and REALLY good mixed with vodka

Re: elderberry jelly (syrup)

My dad makes elderberry wine like crazy and the stuff is awesome. Not as good as his dendelion wine but pretty close. He has elderberry bushes located all over the place and spends a lot of time out picking. I don't know about the health benefits but after a few glasses of that wine I sure feel a heck of a lot better!

Ferment the stuff...then freeze it and skim off ice.
