Elderflower cordial

With elderflowers blooming, Year 2 had a go at making their own delicious elderflower cordial.

First we washed the flowers and put them in a large bowl.

Next, Mrs Bennett boiled some sugar and water.

Then we took turns to slice lemons.

We watched Mrs Bennett carefully pour the hot  syrup and citric acid over the flowers and lemons.

We have left the cordial in a bowl to cool over overnight.

Tomorrow we will strain the cordial to remove all the big bits and pour  the cordial into bottles.
