Elderflower Pana Cotta

 Spring means that there's loads of elderflower around. I went and picked some a few days ago and made an elderflower and vanilla pana cotta. It was accompanied by elderflower cordial that my mum had made from freshly picked elderflowers. It's a great, refreshing dessert for spring and summer.
