The elderflowers have covered the hedgerows with their white fragrant blooms over the past couple of weeks. Take a look at this short video to see how I make my own batch of elderflower cordial. Be quick as the flowers will soon be over…!
Your ingredient list is as follows:
20 elderflower heads
1kg British sugar
1.5 litres of water
85g of citric acid
1 campden tablet to help the mixture keep.
To serve I use lots of ice, a dash of the cordial mixed with lemonade, mint and lemons.
1 normally put 1 part cordial to 6 parts lemonade.
A beautifully refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day
