Elderflower Syrup

Elderflower syrup is something that I have always loved and wished I could make myself. For those of you that have never tasted a drink made with elderflower syrup, it can only be described as summer in a glass.

As well as a pleasant taste and what refreshes can be used to lower fever and has properties that relieve the symptoms of colds and fever.
Those who often use it claim to a beneficial effect on bones and muscles relax and makes them less tense. It is important to emphasize that elderflower juice effect on bronchitis and bronchial problems because it facilitates breathing and helps to quickly purify the airways.
It acts as a detoxifier because it increases urination and sweating and in this way harmful substances are removed from the body.


25-30 elderflower blossoms
1 kilo of sugar
2 liters of water
2 tablespoons of citric acid


Elderflower blossoms wash a little with cold water. Washed blossoms to put in a larger pot and add 2 tablespoons of citric acid and stir a little.
In the second pot put sugar and water to boil. It is important to mix until the sugar has melted.
Pour the hot syrup into the bowl with the elderflower blossoms.Cover the pot with a lid and store in a cool, dark place to cool down.

If you plan to use the syrup right away strain it into a bottle, it should now have a lovely golden hue, and keep it refrigerated.

If you want to store your syrup :

Bring the syrup back to a boil in a clean pot. Meanwhile, prepare several bottles for storing the syrup. Place clean bottles in the oven at 150C for about 15 minutes. This way you will sterilize the bottles.
Pour the hot syrup into the sterilized bottles and carefully close the bottles. Store the elderflower syrup in a cool dry place for up to one year. Once opened, store the bottles in the refrigerator.
