      Hi Peter,
      Just multiply the sugar, water etc to match the weight of the elderberries and all will be fine. The only issues with making larger batches are:
      1. Make sure you have enough jars ready
      2. There can be a little more splattering if the pan is full
      3. If you decide you don’t like Elderberry Jam, its a LOT of jam to give away at Christmas 🙂
