again and again - the elder trees are in bloom

The elder trees are in bloom, and I have made elderflower cordial (with plenty of lemon), I sprinkle elderflowers on my strawberries, I have made elderflower sugar and I have made elderflower fritters – sweet, rich and sinful for anyone minding their calories and, for the rest of us, the world’s best midsummer snack or dessert.

For MANY elderflower heads, mix a batter of:

250 ml whole milk
100 ml sparkling water
2 tbsp sugar
2 pinches of salt
250 g wheat flour
zest from one lemon
3 eggs

neutral-flavoured oil for cooking
