Summer in a glass - Elderflower Cordial
Summer is here and that means lots of lovely foraging can take place :-) With the recent mix of sunshine and rain the Elderflowers have stared bursting out all over the place.
So off I went with my gorgeous wicker basket and three children to collect some of those sunshine filled flowers.
They were then turned into cordial which tastes lovely when combined with sparkling water or Cava.
The flowers are so tiny and perfect .......
It's like drinking Summer in a glass ..... the recipe I used is here; Elderflower Cordial Recipe, I got it from this book. Preserves: River Cottage Handbook No.2 It is full of fantastic recipes, click on the text to be taken to see what other recipes it has in it.
