Elderflower cordial

Pick 30 heads of elderflower on a dry sunny day, choosing those that smell lemony and fresh.

Boil 2 lbs sugar in 4 pints of water for about 5 minutes in a large saucepan. Pour into a large ceramic bowl and add 2 oz citric acid, a chopped lemon and a chopped orange.

Add the elderflower heads and stir well. Cover with a clean cloth and leave for 4 days, stirring every day. Strain through a jelly bag and bottle. For long-term storage, the cordial can be frozen.

To drink, dilute to taste with cool sparkling water. It can also be made with hot water to encourage sweating in colds and fevers.
