A Cottage in Clarkville


Elderflowers

It has only taken me three seasons, but I have finally managed to make some use of the elderflowers that grow here. I have made 3 bottles of cordial which should last for ages as it is very sweet and will be mixed with soda or water. I also made 12 750ml bottles of Elderflower Champagne. Hopefully it will go bubbly but not too much as I don’t want the bottles to explode! The recipe says to leave it for 6 months but I don’t know if we will wait that long.

Well done. Very posh – champagne! Maybe you should change the blog title to Chatau Clarkville!
