apple and elderberry wine

4 pints of freshly pressed apple juice

1.5 lbs elderberries, previously frozen

3 lbs sugar

1/2 teaspoon of wine yeast

Dissolve the sugar in hot water to make a syrup - cool until just warm. Blitz the elderberries in a food processor and strain through a sieve. Add to apple, along with the syrup. Add the yeast.

Allow to work out, racking once during fermentation. When fermentation has completely stopped, bottle.. and enjoy.
