    Late May or early June is the time to make this amazing elderflower syrup or cordial. It tastes great added to sparkling water or Prosecco. I also use it to moisten sponge cakes. The elderflowers should be fully blossomed with as much pollen as possible is on them.

    I make this jam (actually, I suppose it's more like a jelly) every year in early June with big beautiful elderflowers. It requires soaking for 3 days before you can actually make the jam in less than 15 minutes after that. Besides spreading it on bread, you can use it to glaze fruit tarts or as a sweet filling for cakes mixed with cream.

    I've tried a couple of different recipes for elderflower cordial, and I've used this recipe a couple of times now and it produces an excellent result. The light flowery taste of elderflower cordial is one of the most refreshing and individual flavours, which transports you to the long days of early summer.

    A delicious way to take advantage to the bumper crop of wild blackberries this year. Blackberries on their own can be a little flat when made into jam. Adding some elderflower cordial gives it a lovely zing. I made mine using blackberries from my garden and elderflower cordial I had made earlier this summer.

    I made this for the Royal Wedding, and being the wedding of the century - any old strawberry jam would not do. Instead, taking some inspiration from my favourite cocktail, the "Red Lady", I decided to do a strawberry and elderflower jam. Enjoy!
