Elderflowers Galore

There has been so much blossom this year and all the hedgerows have been stunning – beautiful white clouds for weeks on end. Last week I managed to make some elderflower cordial – one of my favourite summer drinks – ad elderflower champagne. This is only the second time I have made champagne and I am a bit wary as 2 bottles exploded last time and the plastic bottles expanded until almost twice their original size! This year’s brew doesn’t look so fizzy so fingers craossed – it will be ready to drink in 8 days time!!
