.elderflower lemonade.

I made eldeflower lemonade this week. 

Here is the recipe:

Makes 5 liters.
20 clean fresh elderflower heads
800 gr sugar
10 organic lemons
10 raisins
2 tbsp of cider vinegar
8 liter of water

In one big recipient (or two if you don't have a big enough one), put the clean flowers, sugar, sliced lemons (it may better to take most of the zest off, as mine became a bit bitter), raisins and vinegar. Top up with still water. Put in the sun covered with a towel for 3 or 5 days (until you see bubbles coming up). Then strain into lemonade bottles and keep cool for 2 weeks. 
Serve chilled with some mint leaves.
