Today Sadie and Oscar picked elderflowers from the hedgerows so we can make our annual batch of elderflower champagne.
We use this recipe which is simple and has always been successful for us.
The elderflowers have an unusual sweet pungent scent, a scent the champagne takes on.
We picked extra ~ we are swapping a basket of elderflower heads for a some lemons which we need for our recipe. I hope we can exchange a bottle of champagne so we can compare vintages.
