ELDERFLOWER TIME


Such a lovely time of the year, particularly for home winemakers.  Just using around five branches of elderflowers (check the smell and variety, as they differ tremendously) to a one-gallon recipe.  The base uses a simple grape concentrate and this wine is usually ok as a medium table wine (SG1005).

Check out HOME FARMER magazine which, this month, gives readers an interesting feature covering several recipes for making wine, cordials and mock champagne (the latter two are not alcoholic)
