"The freshest summer taste!"

Ingredients

  • elderberry - 30 large flowers
  • sugar - 4.5 lb (2 kg)
  • water - 6 1/5 cups (1500 ml)
  • lemons - 3
measures

How to make

Choose fresh and white blossoms of elder, which have not begun to darken, and immediately proceed to preparing the juice. Trim the thick stems if necessary and leave to dry if damp or wet.

Put flowers in a large pot without washing them. Before this, you can put the sugar syrup to boil from the sugar and water - boil until the sugar melts. Let the sugar syrup cool completely and pour it over the elderberry flowers on which you have already put the chopped lemons.

Leave everything as is for 48 hours. Then we're ready to strain the juice - first gently squeeze the large flowers with your hands, along with the lemons, then the small ones, gather up what you can with the strainer and finally strain the juice through a cheesecloth.

Distribute it into bottles, close and store it in a cool, dark area. When consuming, dilute it with water according to taste.
