Elderflower syrup

A family favourite, and very easy to make

Ingredients

  • 15 elderflower ‘flowers’

  • 1 kg sugar

  • 20 grams citric acid

  • 1 liter water

Directions

  • put the flowers in the water and let seep for 24 hours.
  • strain the mixture carefully.
  • Add the sugar and the citric acid.
  • Bring to the boil and let simmer for 5 minutes. This improves the dissolution of the sugar in the water.

Notes

  • Tip: Buy a whole pack of food-grade citric acid. It’s a wonderful descaler (use a 5% solution, i.e. 50 grams in one liter)
