It’s the season for an abundance of Elderflowers.  A sign that the summer has arrived! We have been making litres of Elderflower cordial and Elderflower champagne . It will be ready to drink in a few weeks.

The flowers were picked from trees in Nunhead near the cemetery, at the top of Broadway Market in East London where there is a hidden edible forest garden and in the nature reserve near the adventure playground in Weavers Fields, Bethnal Green. (For cordial and champagne recipes see:  categories: seasonal recipes)

A few more days to go before all the flowers fall.

It is said that Elderflower is very strong as an emotional  healer – as it stimulates energy, vigor, resilience, joy, and our powers of recovery and renewal of energy.
