There was an elder in the back garden of the cottage we're living in. It takes up most of the garden and we agreed with our Landlord (i.e Daddy) that it should be removed. Before my hubby began cutting it back he's collected the elderberries for me. He's also brought some home from a garden he's tidying up for a neighbour. So with this in mind I've been given some apples from my parents and I've made Elderberry and Apple Jelly. Here's me in the process
And here's the result.
I'm gradually building up quite a stock of preserves so will be giving some of these jars away as gifts.
