This elderflower recipe from George Linklater, the Cowdray Forager, is the true taste of the English summer. George runs Estate foraging walks run throughout the year, you can find out more about them here.
“Elderflower is the true taste of the English summer. The heady aroma of this flower’s scent fills the evening air after a warm summer’s day. For me and most foragers this wonderful tree and its flowers and berries are, much like brambles, a gateway into the world of foraging.
When this incredible tree gives us the fruits of its labours it does so in abundance, enticing us into the hedgerows to make all manner of delights from champagnes to cakes and is a true cause for celebration. This simple recipe will bring this unique flavour from your hedgerows direct to your table.”
