Just made a batch of elder blossom lemonade (my cousins recipe)
20 flower “bouquets” (freshly picked)
4,4 lbs (2 kg) sugar (take approx. 1 lbs brown for the color)
2 packs of vine acid approx. 3,2 oz (90 g)
3 lemons (sliced, no seeds)
1-1/2 cinnamon stick you can have more for a deeper cinnamon flavor
8,4 cups (2 l) of hot (boiling) water
If you want a vanilla touch add 2 tbsp vanilla sugar)
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved, place cold for three to four days depending on how deep a flavor you want (take out the lemons and the cinnamon after the third day).
Filter the lemonade (can be done through a kitchen towel) pour it into bottles and store in the freezer. When you want to drink it just pour some in a glass or a jug and add water until the lemonade is perfect according to your taste!
It can also be a perfect flavors for pannacotta, ice cream and other desserts.
