Elderberry flowers: love in a bottle

For this year special edition of homemade elderberry flower (Sambucus nigra) soda, I used 3 liters of water, 12 big flowers, 300g of honey and 1 lemon, sliced. The bottles or the big jar must stay in a warm place, like in a sunny balcony, covered with a gauze. Every day, for about 3-5 days, the juice must be slightly stirred, until it becomes fizzy. For a refreshing drink, keep it in the fridge, with the cap very well sealed, as the fermentation process may continue. It lasts for 4-6 weeks.

  1. Oh I so miss my elder trees…I had lots and lots at the old house…a neighbour would make jam with the fruits…I didn’t know about the drink…now I am wondering where I could find seeds…

  2. Never had fizzy drink made with elder berry before. Just regular non-fizzy lemonade. But it sounds delicious!
