It is a rare occasion that I ask a naked man if I can pick elderflowers from his garden. This was one such occurrence.
|The tree I eventually used|
|A pint of elderflowers|
|Rhubarb in our garden|
|Our main mint plant|
On Monday morning I added a teaspoon each of pectolase, tannin and nutrient and sprinkled in the yeast. I left this until Friday evening, 17th June, when I sieved out the solids and put the liquid into its demijohn. It was a quick job and done before seven o'clock. The wine is pink, but not as pastel delicate pink as pure rhubarb.
