  • Water – 1 liter

Step 1: Wash the Fruit Place the elderberries on a sieve, then wash them thoroughly and pat dry with a paper towel, making sure they do not stick to the wet fruit.

Step 2: Remove Stems Take scissors and cut the fruits from the stems. Remove all green and inedible parts, leaving only the dark fruits.

Step 3: Cook the Fruit In a pot, bring a liter of water to a boil, then add the sugar to the boiling water and stir. Once the sugar is dissolved, add the elderberries. Simmer over low heat until the fruits soften (about 30 minutes).

Step 4: Blend the Fruit Insert a blender into the pot and gently blend the fruits to extract even more juice from them.

Step 5: Strain the Juice Place a piece of gauze on a sieve, and position the sieve over a jar. Start pouring the juice from the pot through the sieve. Strain it thoroughly to separate the seeds and fruit remnants from the liquid.

Step 6: Chill the Juice Let the juice cool, then seal the jar and refrigerate. The prepared beverage will be ready to drink for several weeks.
