Fill the jar half full with elderberries (about 1 cup).
Next, fill with vodka, leaving 1 inch of headspace (approximately 10 ounces).
Cover jar with lid and give it a good shake.
Label jar with contents and date, place in a brown paper bag, and set in a dark cool area for 4 to 6 weeks.
Discard the berries.
Pour into clean, sterile, dark-colored bottles. No dark bottles? Don’t fret, use a clean, sterile pint jar. Just place the jar back into a paper bag to shield the tincture from light.
