Making stuff

I was up early this morning with my bro for the airport run to Carcassonne. The past couple of days have flown by and it has been really lovely to spend some time with him - it's only taken him 2 years to come out and visit! Hopefully he won't leave it too long before he visits us again.

This afternoon I have been busy harvesting elderflowers and have got a batch of cordial (recipe from a friend) and champagne (a River Cottage/Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe) started. It's the first time I have used elderflowers, so fingers crossed for a good result.

I have also got some rhubarb passing through the jelly bag ready for making rhubarb and mint jelly tomorrow. Again, I have never made it before but it sounds intriguing!
