DIRECTIONS

  • Do not wash the flower, but remove any insects and the thick stalks.
  • Place the sugar in a very large bowl and cover with 2 pints of boiling water.
  • Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Then add 6 pints cold water, the rind and juice of the lemons, the vinegar and flowers.
  • Stir well.
  • Cover and leave, covered, for 48 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Strain through a fine sieve into clean bottles with screw tops.
  • Leave an inch gap at the top of each bottle and screw down well.
  • Leave in a cool place to mature. Nice served with ice. Ready to drink in 6 weeks but it tastes better the longer it is left.
