About Elder Flowers - Dry

Elderflowers are small cream colored flowers that bloom on the Elder tree, and are most often used to make teas, cordials, and syrups.


Elderflowers bloom towards the end of spring, from late May to early June. But dried elderflower blossoms are available year round. When dried, Elderflowers retain their creamy color.

The blossoms have a highly aromatic sweet honey scent. The flavor is sweet and fresh, similar to Muscat grapes. It pairs well with tart fruits like gooseberry, cherry, and rhubarb. Most cordials and syrups are made with additional sugar and lemon juice for tartness. Make elderflower tea for a calming evening hot drink.

The Elderflower herb became a popular ingredient in Victorian England where it was used to make a thick sweet non-alcoholic cordial. This was often mixed with a seltzer water to make a refreshing soda beverage. The flowers can also be used to make wines, and marmalades or jellies. The cordials, syrups, and jellies also make fantastic ingredients that infuse the elderflower flavors into tarts, cakes, and puddings. Elderflower cupcakes with a rich cream cheese icing make a decadent dessert. Or, for something lighter, make up a batch of creamy elderflower and honey ice cream.

For savory dishes, spread an elderflower marinade over roasted peppered duck, or mix up an elderflower vinaigrette for fresh salad.
