Remember that elderflower champagne?
The one made from the hedgerows in our garden?
So simple the recipe.. Scarily simple!
Elderflower heads.. Sugar.. White wine vinegar (just a splash)..lemon juice and rind and water..
That’s it! No yeast? Nope no yeast..
The flower heads have it naturally..
Leave for four days. Then bottle.. You can drink it straight away if you want..
I understand now why people say don’t put it into the ‘pop’ glass bottles..
It sure does go pop !! Sheesh!
Take a look at the below links!!
Humph! Nothing left!
Is cool though.. It’s a good learn.. Oh and I opened the first one on the kitchen.. Needless to say its has an almighty scrub down by Mrs Fitz.. Still smells quite elderflowery yet that’s quite nice..
Also I have another batch ready .. And it’s all in plastic bottles …
