Slight experiment started last night, want to see how well this works.
Made a sugar syrup with a litre of water and 2kg caster sugar, 50g citric acid, juice and zest of 2 lemons, stripped 20 elderflower heads into the mix and a couple of big handfuls of Rosa Rugosa petals. Leaving it for 2-3 days (when it'll hopefully take on the colour from the petals) and will strain and taste.

If it works, I'll have something like a rose flavoured elderflower cordial. If it doesn't I'll have a sticky mess.
