  • 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.
