Elderflower cordial

June always says elderflower to me and it's become a bit of a tradition to gather elderflowers at this time of year to make cordial that we can use as a pleasant beverage over the summer months. It's a very simple process

Basic ingredients, citrus fruits of your choice, sugar and of course Eldeflowers

Mix all the ingredients in a stock pot with 3 litres of boiling water and leave to infuse

and the finished result, ready to be diluted to make one of the most delicious drinks there is and infinitely better than shop bought varieties.
