How to prepare:
Shake the flowers well outside, wash carefully and drain.
Divide the elder flowers over the jars.
Pour half a liter cooked and cooled water in each jar. Add to each jar the juice of 1 lemon, 800 gr (cane) sugar, 25 gr tartaric acid and little benzoaat (both conservers: can cause allergic reaction, last 2 ingredients available at a good drugstore) .
Close the jars airtight and let rest 3 weeks at a cold, dark place. Shake now and then.
Pour the contents of the jars through a strainer which is covered with a cloth. Do not push the syrup (the syrup won't stay clear when you push) but drain a while.
Keep the elder flowers syrup in well closed sterilised bottles.
