my friend made this cordail from hedgerow elderflowers in her garden. it is delicious with soda water, ice and fresh mint. she promised me the recipe and i hope to have a go at my own in the next few days. emily had a great find of wild garlic and used the leaves and flowers in salads and pasta dishes. is anyone else making use of wild food this season? i will be envious of any mushroom experts!
