The elder trees were late flowering this year but they produced a mighty fine crop of flowers when they did eventually bloom. Elderflower cordial is one of my most favourite drinks so I always like to make some each summer. The flowers were so good and so plentiful that I made four batches of the cordial. I used the same method as last year, bottling some in sterilised glass bottles and freezing most of it in plastic bottles.
We've finished a bottle of the cordial already. It was delicious.
Doesn't it look gorgeous? I'm always amazed at the beautiful colour; it's so deep even though the flowers are quite a delicate pink.
As usual, I plan to keep the pink cordial for Christmas. However, since there's more than usual, I just might treat myself before that.
Your comments on the crocheted bag in my last post were very kind and encouraging. Thank you very much. I always enjoy reading your comments and really appreciate them.
Bye for now and all the best.
