I lived in Harlech, north Wales for about a year. It is one of the most beautiful places in Wales. I highly recommend it to anyone who plans to visit Wales to go there. One of my friends, Sue took me out foraging for elderflowers, so that she could make me some elderflower cordial as a parting gift. I was given two bottles. It was quite simple to make: just sugar, lemon, elderflower heads, water and patience for the flavours to meld for a few weeks, then strain and bottle up into sterilized bottles.
I am now seeing a lot of elderflower trees, every single tree seems to be out of my reach. I so want to make elderflower fritters and some of this cordial, maybe my 6 foot + husband will be able to reach some of these, let us see what happens over the next few days.
Another quick word on elderflowers, a few weeks ago I was watching a cookery show where they were reviewing some new gourmet foods, one of which was elderflower fudge, now that sounds truly delicious, but I think I have had my fair share of sweets recently.
