It’s elderflower season! Here’s an organic elderflower juice recipe!

It’s elderflower season and so I decided not to miss it out and prepare some nice elderflower juice. I used to drink it as a child and missed it. It is a very refreshing drink and very easy to prepare.

Elderflower is good for detoxing, helps in reducing the effects of sinusitis, helps in coughs and colds.

Here is my recipe for a nice elderflower juice.

Eldeflower juice ( quantity for 2 glasses)

Ingredients

A bunch of elderflower flowers ( the size of a small bunch of flowers to put in a small vase)

Half a lemon or lime

3 spoons brown sugar

Water

1. Pick up a bunch of elderflowers and a nice lemon or lime

7. Close the jar and leave it outside for 2 days.  I left it in my kitchen. In two days open the jar and take the lemon and elderflower out and strain the juice. Don’t worry, the juice will be yellow-brownish. It is perfectly normal. Keep it in the fridge if you don’t want to drink it immediately. photo (15) photo (16)

This recipe is for a mild elderflower juice and not the sparkling kind. Most recipes use yeast or acid citric to make it more acidic, but I prefer milder drinks and therefore this juice is for those who love a refreshing drink in the summer but not an acidic one.
