Elderberry Jam Review



                                                      Rita's Gr-Gr-Mom's Elderberry Jam
                                                                     Here's the recipe.


It jelled to the perfect consistency with no added pectin.
You have to really watch it the last 10 minutes -- stir constantly.





I agree with Rita's Great Grandmother -- it is DELICIOUS!
Tastes "elderberry-y" with a hint of orange at the end -- different and good!

I must have used an apple that doesn't go "mushy" very easy.  I cooked down the
apples till most was smooth.  But, even after the extra 30 minutes of cooking, I still had some
apple chunks.  Don't get me wrong, it still tastes wonderful,  I would just dice the apples next time.
I love the whole elderberries in it -- just plain pretty to look at :-)

The recipe made 10 half pint jars.
(Christmas presents!!!!)
