Meadowsweet is also known as Queen of the Meadow because it's generally found growing in damp meadows and was a main ingredient in the European honey-wine drink known as mead.
Flavours from the flowers are reminiscent of hay, almond and vanilla.
Perfect to mix in waffle or pancake batter. Infuse in hot milk or cream and use as a base for custards, rice puddings, ice cream and panna cotta. Mix into herbal teas, sprinkle into syrups and cordials.
