Pasteurized Bourtree Juice, without Preservatives

Updated: Mar 9

Per 1 Liter of water:

  • 10–15 flowers bourtree/ elder flowers

  • 600 g of sugar or to taste

  • 5 little sachets of citric acid

  1. Arrange the flowers in a deeper bowl and pour cold water, cover and leave to stand for 24 hours.

  2. Strain through gauze, add sugar and citric acid (lemon Acid) to taste and desire, then leave covered for another 24 hours, stirring occasionally. I put 5 little sachets of citric acid on 10 L of water.

  3. Pour into clean and sterilized bottles with a metal lid, then arrange in a cold oven on a rack or baking sheet.

  4. Turn the oven to 90 degrees and the timer to 90 minutes.

  5. Do not open the oven, leave it to cool in it overnight. In this way, sour winter can be pasteurized like cucumbers, for example.

  6. Sterilize bottles either in the dishwasher or clean and dry bottles in a cold oven and turn on at 100 degrees to gradually warm up and cool for an hour.

  7. Fresh mint, lemon and / or orange rings can be added to the flowers.
