Eating Hollerstrauben is like reliving a childhood memory. Each year during elder flower season my mum would make those fritters once- maybe twice. Now whenever one of us children comes home we beg her to make Hollerstrauben. I don’t think I have ever seen this on any restaurants menu or eaten it at a friends house.
As always with elderflowers it’s important to collect them in high bloom and after at least 4 days without rain. Try to get rid of as many bugs as possible. After collecting place them on a paper outside so all the remaining spiders and creepy crawlers may leave your dinner.
HOLLERSTRAUBEN – ELDER FLOWER FRITTERS
[if needed add milk or flour]
_ heat oil in a pan
_ fry until golden brown
_ turn fritters over and fry the second side until golden
_ place on a kitchen towel [to absorb excess oil]
I like to serve it with additional applesauce or drizzle it with elderflower syrup!
