Ooooh - You reminded me. Mrs G does make a lovely elder flower cordial. Uses it in all sorts of things including a compote of our home grown rhubarb and store bought gooseberries. The store was the butchers but we do live in an odd place. One of the daughters picked the elder flowers for us while we were out and when we came in we were convinced that one of the cats had peed somewhere. Glad that smell goes when it is boiled :-) She also tried a cordial of meadowsweet but that never lost the smell of Germolene so it did not go down too well.
