Make elderflower wine!

Elderflower Wine 

1 pint elderflowers (remove stalks) 
8 pints boiling water 
3lbs sugar 
Juice of 1 lemon 
Grated rind of 1 lemon 
½oz yeast 


Add lemon rind to the elderflowers, pour boiling water over them and stand for four days, stirring occasionally. Strain through a fine sieve or muslin , then stir in sugar, lemon juice and yeast. Ferment at room temperature (not below 18˚C). When the bubbling has ceased, stir the wine and allow to settle for three days. Strain again carefully. Put in a demijohn to mature for three months, then bottle.
Elderflowers are currently in abundance so why not give this a go?
