Use half if you do not have pans this big! This recipe makes about 5 litres of cordial.
- 40 – 60 large, freshly opened Elderflower heads – you can use more if you have them
- 3 kilos Granulated Sugar – alternatively, you can use a mix of sugars (white, Demerara, light brown)
- 4 litres cold Water
- 6 – 8 lemons, depending on size
- 100g Citric Acid – Optional – I’ve always used it, but if you freeze the cordial and use the defrosted bottles up quickly, you could manage without it, as it acts as a preservative by preventing fermentation.
