This beautifully coloured vinegar makes a great gift. It is divine in salad dressings. You can vary the amount of sugar to your own personal taste.


Makes: 2 small bottles vinegar

  • 500g elderberries, washed
  • 2 cups (500ml) red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar, or to taste

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:21days soaking  ›  Ready in:21days30min 

  1. Crush the elderberries with a fork (do not use a food processor or you will crush the seeds and it will be bitter). Mix with the vinegar and sugar in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to the boil and cook 10 minutes, until berries are soft. Place in a large glass jar and screw on the lid. Store in a cool dark place for 3 weeks, then strain through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth. Don't press down the berries too much or the vinegar will be cloudy.
  3. Fill attractive bottles or jars with the vinegar. Store in a dark place.
