This Elderberry Jam Recipe is the perfect way to have the taste and health benefits of elderberries around all year long.
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.
