Making Elderflower Cordial

August 2018

We collected elderflowers from the many self-seeded elder trees in the churchyard.

These were steeped overnight with caster sugar, lemon and orange slices and citric acid, to create a delicious elderflower cordial concentrate.

The cordial was sold by the glass at the Abbey Physic Community Garden’s Open Day in July 2018, and sold out in a few hours!

We plan to make a lot more in 2019!
