Elderflower syrup

A family favourite, and very easy to make

Elderflower syrup

  • Servings: 1.5 liters
  • Difficulty: easy

15 elderflower ‘flowers’
1 kg sugar
20 grams citric acid
1 liter

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.

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)
