Do you want to know where you can buy elderflower cordial in West Ealing?

We are all working hard to make sure we have enough stock for Hanwell Carnival on 18th June at Elthorne Park.  We will be there from 11am setting up our stall until around 5pm.  Come early to make sure you get a bottle of our delicious elderflower cordial (£2.50). Why not stick with the elderflower theme and also buy some lemon and elderflower marmalade? (£3.00) We will also have a selection of other jams/jellies and chutneys to tempt you.

Elderflowers Abundant in West Ealing

A group of us went out picking elderflowers yesterday and found rich pickings in Walmer Gardens and particularly Elthorne Park. We hurried back to my house to start the cordial making process and reckon from this batch we’ll get around 70 bottles of cordial that we will be selling at Hanwell Carnival on the 18th June.

Diluted with fizzy water and a slice of lemon, the cordial makes a lovely summer drink – come along early to Hanwell Carnival to avoid disappointment!

elderflower weekend and cordial making 14th/15th May 2011

A group of us are planning to pick several hundred elderflower heads on Saturday morning, May 14th – weather permitting. We might do a repeat ‘pick’ on Saturday morning, May 21st. We’ve found a location where they’re quite prolific, in the ‘fields’ beyond Elthorne Park, although you’d need wellies to wade through nettles in some places, and a crooked stick to pull down the high branches.

We’ll be following the recipe on here which we used last year to produce the cordial which went down very well at Hanwell Carnival and will will be selling again at this years Carnival on the 18th June, as well as Pitshanger Party in the Park on the 26th June.
