Elderflower extravanganza and peach and strawberry jam!

April 30, 2011

Easter holidays…. ahhhh the school holidays always bring an increase in my home productivity!!!  This year I have had another go albeit much earlier at Elderflower Cordial

Here’s my recipe!!

and Thanks to CJJ Berry’s wine making book I added yeast/nutrient etc and have started a batch of elderflower wine….

I also had fun making a load of peach and strawberry jam (thanks ASDA for the 2kg of strawbs for a bargain price)  Follow the link for the recipe….. and just make sure the sugar weight matches the fruit!!

This jam tasted amazing on the crumpets this morning….

    They look great! I fancy trying my hand at some hedgerow wines/cordials… elderflower champagne sounds intriguing.. must look it up and find how to put the fizz in!
