Elderflower and Rose Syrup

The world of twitter is quite amazing .... from Higgledy Flowers to 10 Minute Gardener to find this wonderful recipe for Elderflower  and Rose Syrup.

Rather late in July for Elderflower blooms, but luckily the rains had yet to arrive so I managed to get 10 heads so made a half quantity of the recipe.  The rose petals came from the new roses in the garden - this blend has 'City of London'.

The resulting syrup is so delicious that I will have to make the full quantity next year.  It is sweet with a taste of turkish delight.  
Wonderful over ice cream, make a good long drink with sparkling water and I have yet to try with bubbly.
