Armed with that ID, I started coming across dozens of recipes for elderberries and elderflowers. It obviously is now on my radar.
I found this recipe for elderflower and coriander vodka. And here is one for an elderflower cordial. Because I had most of the necessary ingredients on hand, I made this one for elderflower lemonade this morning.
|I picked a handful of elderflowers|
and plucked off the individual flowers letting them fall into a glass bowl.
|Then zested a lemon before juicing it into the bowl. |
(That's the olive wood lemon juicer tool that I found at a street market in Paris.)
|In went a 1/2 cup of honey.|
|Because I didn't have a second lemon, I thinly sliced a lime |
and added it to the bowl, along with 6 cups of water.
