I have gooseberries I want to make a dessert with, and all my trustworthy recipes (cobbler, fool, etc.) call for adding elderflower cordial, which I can't get hold of. Need it today, so it's pretty much out of the equation.
What, if anything, would you substitute for elderflower cordial? I have tasted elderflower cordial and know it's particular flavor. I think rosewater would be too aromatic and sweet-smelling. Orange-flower water might work. Any ideas?
