This makes a sweet, balsamic-like vinegar. It’s important to cook the elderberries as they are mildly toxic in their raw state



  • 200g elderberries, stalks and leaves removed
  • 350ml white wine vinegar
  • 100g  sugar


  • STEP 1

    Put the elderberries in a sterilised mason jar and gently muddle with the end of a rolling pin. Add the vinegar, seal and leave to infuse, in the fridge, for 3-4 days.

  • STEP 2

    Pour the berry mixture into a pan, add the sugar and gently bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved, then seal in a sterilised, clean bottle.
