I made some last year too and I enjoyed drinking it over the summer.
There's plenty of recipes out there, with roughly the same ingredients but in wildly differing quantities: difficult to decide which is best, especially with regards to the use of chemical preservatives: citric acid use varies from 2 tsp to 75 g!
I have decided to try a variation on the BBC's recipe as follows:
- elderflower heads
- 500 g organic caster sugar
- 1 unwaxed orange
- 1,5 unwaxed lemons
- 1,5 l boiling water
- 50 g citric acid
PS Argh it IS DEFINITELY too citrussy, and not quite enough sugar! Why didn't I use last year's recipe in the first place?!?
PPS doubling the sugar and halving the citric acid does the trick
