Elderflower Cordial


Last weekend I made elderflower cordial. It’s a lovely drink, which is made with elderflowers, lemons, sugar and tartaric acid; all fermented in a bucket for twenty four hours and then bottled. It’s like drinking liquid sunshine.

The cordial will be used for my midsummer ritual. While you can use shop-bought drinks in a ritual, they have additives and preservatives in them that are possibly not a natural ingredient and it’s best that the drink be a natural one.

In this cordial I used elderflowers gathered from my garden, which is important as then the cordial is made from produce of the land I am on, instead of from another part of Britain or whichever country happens to manufacture it.
