Making Elderflower Cordial ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here we see Kate Harden enthusiastically taking us through the various stages of making elderflower cordial, following a favourite recipe from childhood. She also carefully decorates an elderflower cake - delicious! Dissolve 3lbs/1.4kg sugar in 1¾ pints/1 litre of boiling water. Add 2oz/55g citric acid crystals, juice of 1 lemon, 20 elderflower heads. Leave 24 hours. Strain and bottle.

Elderflowers are great! Because it's a flower, it's natural to think that they will taste like nectar or perfume, but they really have a pollen flavor, reminiscent of cattail or pine pollen. It's nice that you pointed out to look for the fresh anthers, which carry the pollen.

First time I've learnt of a cordial, it's interesting how you used the Elderflower floating with the heads upside down.
