    1. Place the elderberries, water and cloves in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and mash the berries with a potato masher to ensure all juice is released.
    2. Pass the mixture through a fine sieve, then press the remaining berries to release every last drop of juice.
    3. Stir in the honey till dissolved. Pour into a bottle or jar, cover and store in the fridge for 2 to 3 months.


    This cordial is a little lighter than most. For a sweeter cordial, add more honey to taste, up to a total of 350g.
