Elderberry lemonade

The elderberries are finally ripe enough to be picked! Since I used the flowers to make lemonade, I felt it was only right to do some lemonade of the berries too.

My sister has been visiting for the weekend and the elderflower lemonade was, according to her, a big hit. She unfortunately did not get the chance to taste any of the elderberry lemonade since we have given away a big bottle and the lemonade we have left ended up in the freezer. It really must be one of the best gifts you can give away, something you made ​​yourself. I know that at least I appreciate such a gift very much.

Elderberry lemonade
2 l elderberries
about 2 cups water, or to cover the berries
1 teaspoon citric acid
2 cups sugar per liter of juice, drained

How to:
Rinse the berries. Put them in a pot and add water.
Cook for about 10 minutes until the berries are soft and mash them against the edge of the pot.
Strain the juice and let it drain for about 30 minutes, measure it and boil it again. Add sugar and citric acid and boil again. Skim off and put in clean, warm bottles.
