In June, the elder will bloom and spread a delicious, sweet smell. The flowers are edible and can be used in various dishes such as fritters, cookies, vinegar and of course syrup. Besides the tasty taste, the elderflower is also very healthy. Colds coming up? Take a scoop of syrup regularly and you will soon be better again. Incidentally, it is important not to harvest all the flowers, because in September the faded specimens become beautiful, dark red berries that also taste delicious in, for example, a confiture.
