Elderflower cordial

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

2 lemons

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
