Sugar-Free Dried Elderberry Jam
(see recipe below; or low-glycemic syrup)
Soak elderberries in water overnight.
Bring berries, water, and juice to a boil.
Remove one cup of jam mixture from heat, add pectin and date paste or syrup, and blend until smooth.
Return blended ingredients to pot and bring to a boil once again. Reduce heat slightly and keep stirring for 10 minutes.
Remove pot from heat and pour jam into canning jars. The sugar-free pectin will harden the jam as it cools.
