This is Miranda, our Elder tree. I’ve chopped a load of her back this year and she has a bit of an aphid thing going on but she is delivering loads of creamy white cat piss smelling flowers. She has roses growing up her and the cats scratch her but she is a tolerant old hag.
Elderflowers work well as fritters made from coconut flour an egg and fizzy water, fried in coconut oil.
Elderflowers also make wine. It’s been a long time since I made any so this may not work.
The lemons are cooling in a sugary water solution ready to add the elderflowers for the champagne recipe from Booze for Free
