Sub. for elderflower cordial?

lucia | Jul 24, 2005 11:10 AM

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?

TIA!
