Elderberry Flowers, the spring in a bottle

Updated: Oct 2, 2020


3 liter of water

1 kg sugar

40 elderflower umbels

6 untreated lemons


Clean the fresh picked elderflowers without any water and place the umbels in a large bowl.

Boil the water with the sugar until the sugar has dissolved.

Peel the zest of 3 lemons and squeeze the juice of 4 lemons. Slicer the other 2 lemons. Add all in the hot syrup together with the elderflower umbels.

Leave the mixture to stand covered in the refrigerator for 24 - 36 hours.

Clean nice bottles with hot water and sterilize in the oven.

Pour off the juice, boil the juice just a minute and fill the bottles with the hot juice. Immediately close . Store in a cool dark room.

Enjoy your homemade elderflower syrup with mineral cold water, sparkling wine or Prosecco
