I was reading through some blogs the other day and someone (I can’t remember who) mentioned lilac water. Right away we had to try. Evie loves flavouring water and is always experimenting, some are good. Others, well are just plain weird. Weirdness happens in the kitchen when you are 9!
Our lilac trees were in full bloom so off we went to cut some.
Basically we cut some blooms and washed them gently in cool water, there are no pesticides, but we wanted to get rid of any dust or bugs. ONLY use blooms that you know are pesticide free.
Take one jug of fresh cool water. Place lilac blooms in the water and place in refrigerator until cold, a few hours.
The water takes on a slight scent and flavour of the lilac. It was nice.
And look how pretty that is. It would be beautiful at a wedding shower or baby shower, or tea.
