Yesterday I had my first attempt at making elderflower cordial. I'd done a quick search on the internet for a recipe and found that I needed some citric acid but being late on a Saturday afternoon, had no chance of buying any so I used this recipe which used extra lemon instead. The flowers are easy to come by as we have a tree in our garden and my hubbie kindly nipped up his stepladders to cut some flower heads off inbetween rain showers. He also debugged the flowers for me because I'm not too keen on creepy crawlies and the flowers seemed covered in them.
We haven't had a Summer here yet and I'm already looking forward to berry picking with the kids and jam making.
