Yesterday was my Elderflower Champagne making day. The sun was shining, it was warm, and the flowers were in perfect condition.
I picked 6 sun-kissed heads of Elderflower, added 600 gms of sugar, 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar, the rind of a lemon, the juice of a lemon, and 6 litres of water. It's as simple as that.
This afternoon I shall bottle it, and put it away until July/August.
Best to place the bottles away from danger (in a shed maybe), as they can become lively and explode. You need bottles that have wired-on tops, as below.
If you intend making some; good luck!
