Elderflower Cordial!

It's that time of year! The elderflower is blooming in abundance and I was determined to make some cordial from them this year (since I discovered how to identify them at last)

I used played fast and loose with the recipe from here:  

 The changes I made were: 
  • Added less sugar - 1kg instead of 2 (My pot wasn't big enough!)
  • Less citric acid - as a result of the less sugar, I added about 50g
  • Lemons AND Oranges! - I threw in the rind of an orange too. Bonus yum. 

And it has not disappointed at all. The kids keep asking for "Flower Juice" and we've gone through a bottle already. And it's such an easy recipe, you should hunt down some elderflowers and give it a try! 

Oh! and I made a label for it which you can download. :)
