Question for Hannah, I'm making some elderflower cordial from a Dick Strawbridge recipe, but was also browsing a river cottage recipe and it mentions Campden tablets, haven't got any, but have a pot of stabilising powder and wonder if that might do the same job? ( potassium sorbate)

the Strawbridge recipe doesn't mention them, but the river cottage book says it helps preserve

thank you

Potassium sorbate will work, it is a well known food industry preservative.
