Drying elderflowers

I'm having  a go at drying some elderflowers as they're in full bloom and very abundant where I live. As I don't have a particular warm place (unless the heating is on) I've just spread them out on a large plate on some kitchen towel and sat them on the table. They're nice and dry so I'm just moving them round every so often.

As it happened I had a couple of sprigs spare. I made a nice strong infusion with these then strained it off, added some honey and a couple of slices of lemon. Chilled overnight in the fridge, this is a really refreshing drink for an (almost) sunny day! :-) I'm planning to make some cordial this week as well.
