I've tried the elderflower tart made from elderflowers from a commercial  
source and it was pretty fragrant.  I was wondering if anyone knew anything  
about the fresh stuff and if I should be drying them.  Since the flowers  coming 
off my plant don't have a strong scent or any real flavor.

The  flowers are good in sambocade, which is a 14th-century English   
cheesecake variant flavored with elder flowers. The recipe doesn't   
specify that they be dried, but it seem like it works much better  with  
dried flowers. Basically it's fresh white curd cheese, egg  (whites  
only), the flowers and a little sugar in a  crust.
