No churn elderflower ice cream

We picked a carrier bagful of elderflowers last week and made a batch of cordial. We’ve had a few hot, summery days since then and have enjoyed drinking it mixed with sparkling water and lots of ice – very refreshing.

I’ve been meaning to try my hand at making some no-churn elderflower ice cream and I’m really happy with the result.

The taste reminded me of soursop ice cream I used to have as a child in Trinidad. Very distinctive – fragrant, floral and heavenly on a hot day.
