Pick over the flowersaplace in a pan; cover with cold water, bring to just under a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, strain out flowers and measure liquid. For every pint of liquid, I added 12 oz sugar - more or less to suit your taste - and the juice of half a lemon. Return to heat to dissolve sugar, then leave until cold and bottle. Process in water bath if you are going to keep it, or freeze in eg plastic milk cartons. Wll kep a while in the fridge too.
Pleased with this, will make it again next year; quite different int aste to the elderflower.
Ours are all but over now, but I will definitley make this again next year; quite different to elderflower cordial.
