Bonjour Wild Cooks
Here’s an entry from over the channel! Yes, even the wildest of cooks likes a little luxury! No, I’m not talking about a night in one of Rudding Park’s deluxe beds … but a taste of the sparkling wonder that is Champagne.
Reims in France was my destination and I am pictured here checking out the grapes growing on the vines.
Champagne is grown from three grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – pictured are some hanging in the Organic vineyards of Benoir.
It reminds me of an old family joke -
“What were Tarzans last words?
Who greased that vine!”
Bad, I know, so moving swiftly on …
The Elderflowers were hanging in the trees over there, so it got me to thinking that Elderflowers will soon be out in the UK. So here is a quick, easy way of making a great spring/summer jelly using both Champagne and Elderflowers:
