Elderberry flower cordial 

We went on a lovely bike ride today!


As were biking along a beautiful path, we were all overcome with the sweet sweet aroma of the elderberry flower!


I foraged a bundle of flowers and enjoyed their scent the rest of the bike ride!


As soon as we got home, I headed straight to the kitchen with my elderberry flowers!

Elderberry Flower Cordial

This is a sweet syrup which can be added to drinks or put on pancakes!

1. I had to pull a million little flowers off of the stems (the stems are toxic)

2. I mixed together 6 cups of boiling water and 4 cups of sugar (it’s no wonder this is sweet)

3. I poured the sugar water over the flowers


4. I then covered the bowl and will leave it alone for 2 days…


5. In 2 days I will taste it and tell you how delicious it is!!! 😋

Elderberry Flower infused Honey!!


1. I pulled off the remaining tiny flowers (about 1/3 cup)


2. I located our honey… 5 almost empty bottles with crystallized honey 🍯 


3. I heated the honey containers in a pot with water…


which made the honey pour out easily onto the flowers!


Again… I have to wait!

4. In 1 week, I will strain the flowers, taste the honey and tell you how delicious it is!! 😋
