  • Lemon, lime, orange (to taste)
  • Lemon juice


  1. Lightly rinse the elderberry leaves in cold water and cut them in half to help release their juice.

  3. In a clean glass container, alternately layer the elderberry leaves, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and citrus slices until the container is completely full.
  4. Close the glass container and place it outside a window.
  5. Over the course of a few weeks, observe as the sugar dissolves. If necessary, lightly stir the mixture and compress it again.
