The sun is still shining! Oh we are so lucky to have a whole summer of pleasant weather here in Scotland. The first flush of this seasons flowers and produce is finished, including the beautiful elderflowers and sweet strawberries. But other crops are ripening at the moment in my garden including wild raspberries and peas. And there are still many ways to prolong the taste of summer, for example by using my elderflower cordial recipe, which you can find here, and freeze the sweet summer drink into homemade ice lollies. It is the easiest thing I have ever made, but I know it will impress your guests and its fun for kids to make too.
500 ml elderflower cordial, recipe here
1/2 a lime squeezed
Simply make the cordial a little stronger than you would take it, if you were drinking it. Squeeze the lime juice in, and pour the liquid into a pre bought lolly tray, or into 6 small washed yoghurt tubs.
Insert the plastic popsicle sticks, or wooden ones if available, into each of the ice lollies and pop in the freezer for 6 hours, or over night.
