Best Elderberry Jelly Recipe
The elderberry jelly recipe was taken out of many pectin box inserts a few years ago as other more popular jelly recipes were added. Hopefully one day it will make it back in but until then this is a great elderberry jelly recipe to use.
Elderberry jelly can be used as a elderberry syrup alternative as a more reliable way to get the benefits of elderberry to your family. Elderberry jelly tastes like blackberry jelly with a twang. Few kids say no to the flavor of this elderberry jelly recipe.
