Canning Elderberry Pie Filling


The elderberries are blooming and loaded this year. In the most recent freezer clean out I thawed out some and canned some homemade elderberry pie filling. This should make room for the new crop in the freezer. For me elderberry has been a super simple crop to grow and easy to propagate. I dehydrate some for hot tea during the winter as it is supposed to help strengthen the immune system. This is the first pie filling from them I have canned thus far. 

Elderberry Pie Filling for canning (1 quart)

5 cups elderberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 cup Clear Jel

1. Combine water, sugar, Clear Jel and cook over medium heat until thick stirring often to prevent sticking.
2. Add lemon juice and simmer for about a minute
3. Fold in elderberries and simmer for about 5 minutes. 
4. Put in hot jars and seal. Process quarts and pints in water bath canner for 30 minutes. 

***My berries were frozen so I defrosted the berries and strained off the juice and used it as my water. You can add water to the juice the compensate for the difference.)
