I found a multitude of recipes for the elderflower cordial/socata
Unfortunately, it's too late (at least around here), the only flowers left are old (checked them out yesterday).

Will be about a week here before in flower - at 950m.

Can't wait. Our dark crimson elder has the most beautiful pink flowers which give the cordial a pink tinge and has a wonderful taste.

Re: Edible wild foods ...

Otherwise known as 'Waldmeister' in German and 'Aspérule Odorante' i French. It is just starting now- and we found some on our week-end walk. Here is is used infused in hot milk before making 'ice-cream', 'crème brûlée' or other custard dishes- to give it a sort of vanilla flavour.
