Havings just bottled 3 lots and 8 oz of green beans I thought I would share the recipe with you.


25 elderflower heads ( wash)
1.5 litres if boiling water
1.5 kg sugar
2 unwaxed lemons, sliced
2 oz ( 50g) citric acid

Disolve sugar in boiling water and leave to cool.Stir in the citric acid and add elderflowers and sliced lemons. Cover and leave for 3 days, stirring occassionally. Strain and poor into clean sterilised bottles and then seal. Store in a cool place.

I also put some in plastic bottles, leaving some headroom and put them in the freezer, keeping a bottle on hand for cool summer drinks.
