Elderflower Fritters

Happily I located an elder next to my office the other day, off the road and with lots and lots of flower heads to pick. So I made fritters!

The finished fritters were lovely, not the most attractive I hasten to add, but crispy and doughnut soft in the middle. I sprinkled them with sugar and served with some softly whipped cream. The flowery scent is gorgeous here, not to overpowering and it is so lovely eating basically free food!

I think I need to make my batter a bit lighter next time, for some reason it was very thick.

Head over to Colour It Green’s blog for a fabulous recipe and a better picture of finished fritters – she is an elderflower connoisseur!

    what a fantastic recipe idea! I’m off to that site…

    Not many elder’s up here where I live now, unlike where I grew up, I miss that gorgeous flower smell in the evening.

    …good news, however, I too have located one. This is in the field behind our house. Off to get some!
