- Pick 10 large elderflower heads
- 900ml boiling water
- 700g sugar ( I mixed caster and unrefined light muscovado)
- 4 lemons (grate zest, juice and slice)
Put the elderflower in a pan or tub and pour the boiling water. Add sugar, lemon juice, zest and slices and stir.
Leave in a cool dark place for 24-48 hours
Strain through muslin or sieve and pour into bottles (sterilised).
The cordial is lovely, to make it last keep in the fridge and for a truly indulgent treat add a dash of cordial to sparkling white wine...simply divine!!
