Seedless Elderberry Jam
(Good With Wild Game)

4 lb. elderberries
4 lb. sugar
juice of 3 lemons
rind of 1 lemon

In a kettle, mash berries and bring to a boil over low heat. Add a little water if necessary. Add 1 pound sugar and simmer until berries are soft. Add water as needed to keep it from sticking.

Strain berries to remove seeds and add lemon juice and rind. Add remaining sugar and cook for 30 minutes, stirring and skimming frequently.

When jam reaches desired thickness, remove from heat. Pour into hot, sterilized glasses and seal immediately with paraffin.
