Elderflower is such a variable plant. No wonder Hippocrates described it as his “medicine chest” because of the wide array of health concerns it seemed to cure. The white flowers are not only beautiful and fragrant but you can also use them in the kitchen. Infusions, cordials, syrups, or these elderflower fritters. The berries can also be eaten when fully ripe (cooked to make jam or jelly). Both the flower and the berry have traditionally been used to treat diabetes.
