How to make Elderflower and Orange Blossom Cordial

British elderflower season generally starts early May and end towards the end of June. Elderflowers are buttery in colour and grow in clusters in hedgerows. A staple of British summer time, elderflower cordial is a very versatile ingredient and can be used for a variety of cakes, jellies, drinks and puddings. Normally made with a huge amount of refined sugar, we’ve made ours with honey instead for a healthier version! It’s important to make your cordial within two hours of picking your flowers while the flowers are fresh.
