    I live in Northern Michigan…where can I get elderberries? They are hard to find right now.

    Thank you Elise, I did cook them first and then started to try the food mill. I found the food mill ground up the seeds somewhat making the pulp coming out of the mill gritty from the grinding of the seeds. So I ended up still draining through cheese cloth for a more desirable consistency. I love using the food mill for other sauces (like tomatoes) but the elderberry seeds stay brittle even after the cooking. Might invest in the steamer strainer. A good thing since I have a beautiful big elderberry tree.
    Thanks for you help. I hope this answers anyone else inquiring the use of the food mill for this.

    instead of mashing and straining berries could you use a food mill. I also read somewhere not to put in food processor as it could cause it not to set. What do you think

    Would we be able to use dried elderberries this recipe? We haven’t had a chance to go picking this year, but it’s one of our favorites!

    Thanks for this excellent recipe! I’m starting my third batch of the summer right now. It’s been our go-to immune booster for the summer colds (which come with preschool…) and my parents love it, too Thank you from a Davis family. :)
