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.
