Been Missing Out

Sunday continued the spell of hot weather nudging this year’s high temperature up to 28.8°C.

Our elderflower cordial was given the taste test today. All that needed to be done today was to strain the mixture through a muslin cloth and the cordial was ready. It was surprising how just a couple of pink flower heads coloured the mixture.

It was left in the fridge for a couple of hours to cool before the taste test. Diluted with some water it made an excellent refreshing drink on a hot summer’s afternoon. It’s especially good with strawberry and white chocolate muffins but that’s another story. 

We've certainly been missing out on a simple to make delicious cordial. We might just have time to collect another 30 heads of elderflowers before they go over.

  1. Wow this color of cordial is amazing. We don't have pink flowers here. Only white and they finished with blooming almost a month ago.
