Cook elder-berries with 1/2 cup of water to each quart of berries. Strain and combine with apple juice in the proportion of 1/3 elderberry juice to 2/3 apple juice. Use 3/4 - 1 pt. of sugar to each pint of juice. Finish as for currant jelly. Elder-berries alone make a strong flavored jelly, but this combination is delightful.
Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, wild cherries, pineapple, barberries, peaches, plums and some other fruits, all make better jelly by combining with apple juice in proportions according to flavor. Use no water with any of the fruits but the apple.
Currant juice may be combined with these fruits instead of apple juice.
