In case you didn’t know already we thought we’d let you in on a little secret… Around the hedgerows and countryside you will find elderflowers. These are gorgeous little tasty morsels & we LOVE elderflower flavoured anything.
It’s now in season & we thought we’d try & tempt you with seasonal delights…Try making a classic homemade elderflower cordial recipe or if you’re feeling adventurous try brewing a bubbly elderflower champagne. (non-alcoholic)
All you need is fresh elderflower heads, picked before 12 and not in the rain, then water, lemons & sugar. Then some pretty bottle for everything to go in. Voila. What about trying Elderflower frittas? They are soooo scrummy, we love them with maple syrup.
Whilst you’re in the mood for foraging here are some other seasonal tasty treats: strawberry or raspberry jam making time, pickling beetroots, and various other yummy things that pickle well. You can find scrumptious homemade jams & cordials in your local health food store, so we hope you find some way of consuming some of this beautiful & English summer produce. We have to find ways to keep our spirits lifted despite this awful weather; and there are only soooo many pairs of Beyond Skin vegan shoes you can wear to make you feel happy 🙂
