What to do with Elderberries
Last year I was too late to collect elderflowers to make elderflower champagne so I looked up some info on what to do with the berries instead and I found Andy Hamiltons Elderberry Liquor recipe. I began it as per instructions and on New years eve completed the ingredients process.
It was supposed to be ready by Paddys Day however, when we ‘tested’ it I found it too bitter.
Last week my lovely sister Linda came for an impromptu visit and we decided to try it again. MY Goodness! What a difference a month makes! It is delicious – too declicous in fact – we have already managed to drink half of it!!
So this year whilst I do hope to try making elderflower champagne I will also definately be making this liquor again too!
Try it yourself – it’s super easy – just takes patience that’s all.
