elderflower sirup 2012
Finally picked flowers and made elderflower sirup tonight, after a search through town for corks to close these beer bottles with. These are made for champagne bottles and are the only ones I could find that actually fitted.
I normally use empty wine bottles but just before I started making sirup roommate Huub took every bottle in the house to the recycling bin. These beer bottles are a much better fit for sirup without preservatives anyway, and they look pretty without labels and with their white caps...
Now there's still a pan waiting to be turned into elderflower champagne.
