Transformation


From this...

Via this...


To this...


Equals one very chuffed Petit Filoux. My very first elderflower cordial. So ridiculously easy to make, it's silly. And it tastes rather wonderful. Yum!

Oooh get you! Very impressive. You win the preserving game.

(Obviously if I move I'll be telling you, I'm far too needy to move and not let anyone know!)

(I have no idea where the blog list has gone, I obviously got a little click happy the other day and deleted it!)

OK, hands up who hasn't made elderflower cordial this month? :o)
I can smell the heady scent of elderflower all over blogland!
Yours looks lovely PF

Comment vous le diriez en français - sirop aux fleurs de sureau peut-etre?

What a clever little Petit Filoux you are. And, it looks like Jam is next on your list, looking at all those empty jars sitting on your kitchen counter.

indeed Jill, jam is next!!
And Sue, yes I believe that's how you'd say it, but I have to admit I had to look it up in the dictionary at the weekend! x

Yum, I'm certainly wishing that we had some elderflowers here. Great job, it looks gorgeous.

I bet it tastes scrumptious .... and is very pretty too .
Well done !

Well done!! Once you know what flowers to look for, they seem to be everywhere. I make a bit extra and freeze it in plastic bottles to have in the middle of winter!! Last night I made Rhubarb and Strawberry cordial, that too is wonderful.

MMMmm! We did it too at the weekend. Haven't got around to posting about it yet. It's such a rewarding thing to do. my little girl loved, loved, loved the whole process!

Looks delicious...I've always wanted to try this although I'm not entirely sure there are elderflowers here!
