How to make elderberry jelly

Lots of elderberries and another bucket of them picked yesterday. So, making elderberry jelly (using some of our windfal apples as the pectin source) was a logical way to use them up. We will also be making wine and cordial from the berries as well.

what is cordial and how do you make it?

a drink made from fruit, watered down with sugar or honey to further sweeten it.

I made this a few days ago but unfortunately it did not thicken much. Taste is fine but it's more of a sauce now. Can this be because the elderberries were frozen?

We have an abundance of rose hips in the neigbourhood. Any recipe ideas?
