The name Elderflower comes from the Anglo Saxon word "aeid," meaning fire, as its hollowed stems were once used to get fires going. Elder's medicinal uses date back to the Roman Empire when it was used a cure for coughs, colds, and inflammation. As a tea, it was used as a tonic for purifying the blood.
Parts of the plant are thought to be poisonous and should not be consumed.
Here is one of Albert Trummer's original recipes using elderflower:
3 ounces Veuve Clicquot champage
2 ounces of Trummer elderflower essence
1 ounce fresh hibiscus
garnish with a fresh edible flower
