Rinse the flowers and remove roughly the main stem. Leave the flowers on the rest of the greenery.
Add to the clean large bucket the water, sugar and flowers.
Peel the Lemons and cut them roughly into fat slices.
Add the Lemon slices and the Citric acid powder to the bucket with the other ingredients and mix the whole content well with the elongated cooking spoon.
Leave the elderflower mixture stand for 2 days. Keep on stirring throughout the day once or twice so that it all gets well mixed and close always with the lid. The elderflower flavors will infuse the sugar water.
After 2 days you can strain and bottle the syrup. Press the syrup out of the blossoms and lemon pieces to get the maximum out of your home made syrup.
Store in a clean sterilized bottle in a cool and dry place, away from direct sun light.
Enjoy with water as a refreshing cooler in the summer months!
One batch of Elderflower syrup makes about 1 ½ gallon (6 liters), which in turn should fill about 6 bottles. This makes about 150 servings (if used as a beverage mixed with water)
It's better to prepare this large batch because elderflower cordial makes a great gift and can be stored for up to 10 months in a cool and dry place if kept in sterilized jars.
