ok.. So it’s time to make the elderflower champagne again.. With the hedges in the process of being cut its a race against the machines!
Picking the eldeflowers..
Adding the lemon into the water.. With two tablespoons of white wine vinegar in each container.. ( 5 litres approx..)
Plus the sugar .. 750 grams per containers..
Stuffing it all in..
Then the elderflowers stuffed in also..
Adding a few grams of sparkling wine yeast..
Lids kinda on.. Hidden behind the dining room table.. Shhhhh don’t tell Mrs Fitz!
They will take three days.. Then get re-bottled .. Then should be ready in a further nine days.. Although will keep a good while..
Let’s hope for no big bangs this year!
( search elderflower in the search box on cookingwithmrfitz.com)… Ahem…
