If you fancy making an elderberry compote, here’s the recipe:
Wash and hull the elderberries and put them in a pan with the water. Add the lemon juice, cinnamon and cloves and simmer for approx. 20 minutes. Peel the apple and chop into small pieces. Remove the stones from the plums and cut into small pieces. Add the apple and plums to the other ingredients and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
In the meantime mix the vanilla powder with some water. Take the elderberry compote from the stove and take out the cinnamon stick and the cloves. Mix in the pudding powder and leave to cool. Sweeten to taste (e.g. with honey).
