Elderflower glycerite

Pack heads of elder blossom into a large jar, then fill with vegetable glycerine, stirring to release any air bubbles. Put the lid on and place the jar in a warm place, on a sunny window ledge, or by a range cooker, and leave for two weeks. Strain using a jelly bag or a press. Bottle the liquid, label, and store in a cool dark place. You can use this glycerite as is, or add elderberries in the fall (see next page).

Dose: 1 teaspoonful as needed for sore throats. For a clear complexion and smooth skin, mix half and half with rosewater and use freely as a face lotion.
