“Another fine summery soup - refreshing, light, and different! Elderberries are common in my native Germany. This soup may be served hot or cold, but is better cold as a summer treat. Serve with gingersnaps crumbled into each serving. Drizzle in heavy cream, if desired.” - by THELASTBARON
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place the elderberries in a pot with 2 cups water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat, puree in a blender until smooth, and return to the pot. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of the puree, and stir into the pot to thicken.
- In a separate pot, bring the apples and remaining water to a boil. Place the lemon peel in the pot. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove peel. Mix the elderberry puree into the apple mixture, and sweeten to taste with sugar.

"I haven't made this. I don't even know where to get Elderberry's in the US. I live in a moderately rural area of WV. Too much like town to find someone growing them. Not enough like a city to be a..." See moreble to buy them. I grew up on homemade elderberry jam and it was my favorite, but my dad doesn't grow them anymore. So sad. "
