Elderflower Update



I decanted the Elderflower cordial this afternoon, and made Lemon with Elderflower Marmalade out of the lemons - very satisfying. There wer ethree lemons. I removed the pips, whizzed the lemons with the stick blender 'til they looked ok & put them in a pan with water to the level of the lemons. Simmered for a few minuted 'til the lemons were soft, then added the sugar, disolved & boiled for five minutes. That's all it took! Lisa came into the garden later & said "Hey Dad - that lemon stuff might taste quite nice..." Only two qualifiers -high praise indeed!

Thanks for your comment, Sara. I'll be making a double batch of cordial next time. The lemon marmalade is very popular!
