IT'S ALMOST JULY - MAKE SOME ELDERFLOWER CORDIAL!

On a hot, sunny day (if we ever get one) nothing beats Elderflower cordial diluted with sparkling water and served with ice and a slice of lemon. 
July heralds the best time to get out and pick those flower heads and I've already seen a few on the hedge surrounding my allotment. 
If you know a good spot to pick some Elderflowers, keep an eye on the blooms and hopefully, you will be able to pick them when they are huge, like small tea plates - you'll need about 25-30 flower heads (and most of the small individual flowers need to be open, not still in buds) for your Elderflower cordial recipe lemons, an orange, sugar and citric acid
Enjoy!
