Embrace Elderflower Season with Richard Burr's BIY

2 Jun 2017 |

Elderflower season is upon us so grab your baskets, run out into the country side and pick some lovely blooms, whip them up into some delicious cordial and then make these delicious pavlovas!




So, it’s late summer. You’re having a barbecue and serving salads, leaving the oven free for ages. Why

not make these for pudding? This light dessert is so delicious, you won’t believe your mouth. They

are very easy to make, but look great. You can also make them a day in advance and keep them in the

fridge. The combination of elderflower, blackberry and mint is so refreshing that, even though these

contain about a metric ton of whipped cream, you’ll leave the table feeling light and happy.
