no added yeast, non-alcoholic version
20 elderflower heads
5 lemons
150ml vinegar
1.5kg sugar
20 litres water

Cut most of the stems from the flowers. Shake any bugs, dirt etc.
Squeeze lemons and cut rind into strips.
Add all ingredients to a large container, stir until the sugar is dissolved. Steep for 24hrs, then strain, bottle and seal. Store in a cool place. Keep at least 3 weeks before drinking.
Make it now and it will be ready for the christmas celebrations.
