Shoshe - Preservation

Two nights ago we made tomato paste from tomatoes that we grew in our garden plot. Tonight I made elderberry cordial (from elderberries we bought at the farmers' market) and pickles from the Boston Pickling Cucumbers that we grew, using my great-grandfather's recipe.

I've had elderflower cordial, but not elderberry. I don't suppose the two are anything alike?

We actually haven't tasted it yet. It's dark purple, but when you wash elderberries, the water gets really blue!
