Submerging a head of elderflower in a jar of sugar is all you need to do to end up with a wonderfully floral flavour. It does tend to make the sugar clump up a bit, so is best used if being dissolved into something such as a sugar syrup or in baking recipes. However, it's wonderful sprinkled over a variety of fruits – just give it a stir with a spoon to break it up beforehand.

1
Brush away any bugs or dead leaves from the elderflower head
2
Place in a bowl with the sugar, mix around, then transfer it all to a jar. Store in a cool dry place
3
The head can be left in the sugar, or remove it after a few days if preferred. The little flowers are edible but you may want to remove them if they've turned brown
