Elderflower Season!

The Elderflower is out big time this year and we're all scouring for creative recipes to use it in. Elderflower and gooseberries appear to go hand in hand for fool, jam, sauce and sorbet, or you can go for straight-up elderflower fritters and ice-cream. There are plenty of recipes out there, no surprises Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Sarah Raven have a few but there's no beating the classic and original Elderflower Coridal. Handy tip: once it's made you can either keep it for up to a year in sterilised bottles or alternatively freeze it.
