ElderFlower Cordial

This recipe is one we have used for two years now and is excellent every time.

20 elderflower heads

900g sugar

One Pack of citric acid (available from a chemist)

Zest and Juice of Two Unwaxed Lemons

Zest and Juice of an Unwaxed Orange

Sterilised Bottles.

Shake the elderflower heads to dislodge insects and rinse briefly in water. Bring one litre of water to the boil and remove from heat. Add all of the sugar and citric acid, zest r and juice of the lemons and the rind and Juice of the Orange, Stir until the sugar is dissolved and immerse the elderflower heads. Leave to infuse overnight, remove the flowers and strain the cordial into clean, sterilised bottles. Serve diluted with water to taste.

We Got A Mention By The Independent

Thank you to The Independent for mentioning us in their travel magazine.


Now is the time to make elder flower cordial, elderflower champagne, syrup, fitters etc. Because soon the flowers will turn brown and no longer useable, but never fear you can use the berries that follow which are good, added to an apple pie.
Elderflower are very common and can be found easily, however it is usually rare not to find them surrounded by stinging nettles, so when you go out to pick them remember to wear something thick like jeans, not shorts and flip flops like Carey did. The Flower heads are the ones you want to pick (above picture). They have numerous tiny cream-white flowers.
Above is a picture of the plant you do not pick that you can mistake as elderflower, also they grow very nearby so it easy to pick them by accident. They are not poisonous but they are not the ones you are after. Try not to pick elderflower by a road as they will of absorbed the car fumes.
