Elderflower cordial recipe
    #4283934 - 06/11/05 05:51 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Elder trees (Sambucus nigra) are found almost everywhere in Europe in West Asia and right across North America.

Throughout these countries it is stooped in myth and folklore. The flowers are ideal for colds and influenza and are also good in aiding hay fever.

Elderflower Cordial


30 Elderflower heads
3 unwaxed lemons
2KG granulated white sugar
2 litres water
citric acid or ascorbic acid (vitamin c)


Chop up the lemons and add them to a large pan along with the elderflowers and water.

Simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally then strain through muslin into a bowl.

Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.

Add citric acid/ascorbic acid to taste.

To drink add 1 part cordial to 3 parts water.

This stuff lasts for many months in a fridge if stored in sterilized bottles and is great poured neat over ice cream!

You can also make a mean vinaigrette out of it. Just mix it with wine vinegar, mustard, olive oil and salt and pepper!
