A little late for this year now…but certainly one to note in your diary for next years elderflower crop
The most popular use for elderflowers at this time of year, is for making elderflower cordial or wine, but how about Turkish Delight! Last year I made it using a recipe on the River Cottage website and it was DIVINE! However it used gelatine and I then discovered that real Turkish Delight doesn’t use gelatine at all, added to which, it meant my vegetarian friends had to abstain. So this year I’ve made it again without, after finding an adapted recipe on Alison Delaney’s Nibbling on Nature blog. It has worked equally well and has had rave reviews from all my tasters (it does make a lot)! It’s easy to make but does involve a bit of elbow grease.
The elderflowers are just coming to the end of their season…
