Elderflowers are out

Terence and myself were out hiking on Sunday near Galbally and some of the Elder trees were in full bloom - luckily for me I had a box in the car so we started collecting the flowers...and when coming home, I was lucky again as I had enough sugar, lemons and citric acid to make a batch of elderflower cordial.....the smell in the kitchen was amazing after I added the flowers to the sugar syrup....the next day I strained the mixture and bottled it nicely. Half a bottle is already gone - just love the taste of summer....and my Sunday breakfast is sorted now as well as I got a bottle of prosecco in the fridge.....what better way of starting a lazy Sunday but with elderflower prosecco
