Elderflower Syrup

, , ,

Pluck some elderflowers.

I’ve made a elderflower syrup without using any kind of citrus fruit acid for maximum taste.

Just boil sugar syrup, pour over the elderflowers and lemons. Close, in the fridge for 2 -3 days.

Drain, boil and fill up! Done!!

Elderflower syrup tastes good with sparkling or flat water and of course in a hugo drink. You can also use in desserts or cakes.
