Elderflower Syrup

Recipe by: Liesbeth Verwimp

The elder is related to the honeysuckle. The shrub grows in the wild along the side of the forest or along roads. In the summer you can pick elderflowers. To separate the blossoms from the umbels, leave them covered in a warm place for a while. The flowers open and fall from the screens. You can mix the blossoms in pancake batter or you can fry them as fritters. Elderflower tea promotes sweating and is therefore recommended for flu or colds with fever.
