The first of a number of Shrubs for the Food in Jar Challenge..
8 0z of Elderberry Syrup (made with cooked elderberry juice and sugar at 1 to 1 ratio)
2 oz of Apple Cider Vinager
2 oz of plain water (but I would like to try different fruit flavoured left over canned juice)
Measure, mix, pour, chill and serve.. it was delightful and I do not know why I have not made it before. it truly surprised me at how rich and depth of flavour this mix gave me, it was like a good wine in regards to top and bottom notes.
I have grown and harvested Elderberries on the farm for 12 years, most year, I harvest at least 30 to 50 plus pounds of them, I made juice, jelly, syrup and Cold-Honey blends.
So if you put up some elderberry juice or elderberry syrup, consider making a pint into this awesome drink, and if not.. and you want to try it, there are many places that sell dried elderberries to be made into syrups.
