4kg Sugar (Granulated White)
60 Elderflower Heads
50g Citric Acid
- In a large pan, place the elderflowers with their heads facing down and cover with slices of lemon.
In a second pan add the water, sugar and citric acid together. With a gentle heat stir all the time, making sure that all the sugar dissolves.
Pour the dissolved sugar water gently over the lemons and elderflowers.
Cover and leave for 3 to 4 days.
Pour into sterilised bottles, and enjoy chilled.
