Let’s hope the sun will shine for everyone on Sunday so we all have a fabulous day.
Last chance to buy our elderflower cordial for 2011 – priced at £2.50. We are also promoting as many uses as possible for our delicious grape jelly – have it on toast, with sausages, chicken or cheese: You can even stir into gravy! £2.50 for a jar – and it will go a long way.
Our elderflower cordial was the most popular product by far! Selling 60 bottles, it’s a good job we made lots more this year as we will also be at Pitshanger Party in the Park on Sunday 26th June. And for those of you looking for our chutneys they will be on sale too – our WEN chilli chutney is always a great seller so come early to avoid disappointment.
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 https://westealingabundancew13.wordpress.com/2010/06/11/292/ 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.
