and picked elderflower blossoms. (There are plenty of elderflower bushes in our area, but picking blossoms from bushes that are close to roads is not a good idea as traffic fumes pollute the air and the plants)
I made cordial and elderflower infused lemonade from the blossoms. This is the recipe for the lemonade.
1. Make lemonade the way you like it. I prefer to use honey or brown sugar
3. Wash and clean blossoms (i.e. make sure that there are no creepy-crawlies or dried bits). Add it to the lemonade.
4. cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
The zest from the sliced lemons gives the drink a tangy taste. I discarded them after the first night, because I felt it might be a bit too tangy for the kids.
You need to strain the lemonade before serving.
It is such a refreshing drink on a hot day!
