elderflower-orange syrup with lemon balm


Like every year, I try to use summertime to make delicious syrup. This time I finally managed to capture my elderflower experience and I am pleased to finally be able to share my syrup recipe with you.We have a lot of elder trees in our garden, which is why it would be a shame not to take this opportunity. Elderflower blooms from May to early July - so quickly collect a few umbels. Syrup is the perfect gift for all circumstances and is always a good idea. Of course, you can also just keep the syrup yourself and conjure up a super delicious summer drink with it. Since there are syrup recipes in all variants and flavors, I have developed a recipe, which I can call my own. You can find the recipe for my summer drink of the year right here.



INGREDIENTS:

 

25-30 umbels elderflowers

1 kg of sugar

1 orange

1 ½ lemons

5 sprigs of fresh lemon balm

1 sprig of fresh mint

1.5 liters of water

 

 PREPARATION:

 

  1. Collect the umbels and shake a bit to remove any remaining insects (please do not wash the umbels, otherwise the aroma will disappear).

  2. Slice half a lemon and orange and place with the umbels in a jar or mason jar (you can also take a pot with a lid).

  3. Add the water and herbs and let it rest for about 24-48 hours.

  4. After the time has elapsed, run the syrup mixture through a sieve into a large pot. Add sugar and bring the pot contents to a boil. Press the remaining amount of lemon and orange and add the juice to the syrup after boiling.

  5. Fill the syrup in previously sterilized bottles and close them, keep cool and dry.
