2 cups elderflowers

Remove most of stems from fresh elder flowers and put in a large mason jar. Pour 3.5 cups heavy cream over flowers, stir, and put on lid. Let steep in the fridge for 3-4 days. Then strain and press out cream from plant material. You should have about 3 cups cream. Set 1/2 cup aside.
Pour .5 cup milk into medium bowl and sprinkle with gelatin
Put 2.5 cup infused cream, sugar, and salt in saucepan over medium heat. Whisk together to dissolve sugar and salt Heat until the cream comes to a boil, then remove from heat. While whisking, ladle one cup hot cream into the gelatin mixture. Add remaining cream, whisking until gelatin is dissolved. Strain into medium bowl, and whisk in the reserved .5 cup infused cream.
Pour into ramekins, dessert glasses, or whatever container you’d like to serve it in. Cover with plastic and chill for at least 6 hours.
