Do it. Do it. Do it!
I insist you have a go....pick some elderflowers, dip them in a light batter and deep fry until golden brown. Sprinkle with some icing sugar and absolutely, completely and utterly devour them in their entirety.
They are delicious, free and have the most delicate fragrance and taste - all preserved within the batter.
Pop out now, whilst the sun is shining and eat one of our indigenous flowers. Remember the flavour...it'll be another year before you can do it again.
Yesterday, I taught Jacqueline my recipe for Elderflower fritters in our monthly lesson...above are the pictures.
As ever, click on the picture for a close up.
