Elderflower

image

This is elderflower, which is popping up all over the place at the moment. Unbeknownst to me this is a local Veldkos, ending up in cordials, champagnes, wine, tisanes (infusions), shower gels and can even be used as a pesticide.

Yesterday I had a delicious Elderflower drink made by our cousin Tessa, and this prompted me to track down a BBC guide to various recipes. The key page is here and if you want to jump straight to the champagne recipe click here.  Apparently the flower contains natural yeasts and so no yeast needs to be added.
