Elderflower juice

I have to recognize that I waited so long for the blooming of the elderflower. As soon as I saw the first flower I picked some from the forest near by. There is no juice to replace this one! I remember from my childhood when I was picking bags full of elderflower and my mother dried them on the table in the living room to keep them over the year. And the entire house was smelling of the elderflower parfum...

  • 750ml water
  • 3-4 elderflowers (taken preferably after the rain to avoid insects)
  • the juice of half lemon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (or more if you prefer it more sweet)

  1. Put the sugar and the lemon juice in water and stir.
  2. Add the flowers as they are into the water.
  3. Let it cover for 2-3 days. After all this time becomes a bit sparkling and develops a strong aroma that makes it perfect to drink.
