As I mentionned in my previous post (the monday flower printable) I wanted to share with you an old recipe.
I really enjoy to come back to simplier things sometimes: To draw or to paint on real paper without a computer, to train a little on lettrring, to cook and to try old recipes. In french, we talk about grand mother’s recipe, les recettes de grands mères.
So today, I will share a label I drawn and turned into a printable and a nice recipe: Elderflower lemonade.
I tried this recipe a couple of times and experienced both sucess and huge failures. So here is a compilation of different recipes that proved to work. The key to success may be that it includes strange ingredients such as raisins and rice.
Elderflower Lemonade ingredients
- 6 clusters of flowers
- 2 l of cold water that has previously boiled
- 200g of sugar
- 10 raisins
- 2 biological lemons
- 1 tea spoon of cider vinegar
- 1 table spoon of uncooked rice
Gather the flowers in the morming, so that they are fresh. Check that they are free from insects (don’t wash with water wipe with a dry towel).
Gather all ingredients in a large plastic bowl (it seems that plastic is even better than glass)
Leave to rest for 3 days in the sun preferably
Filter and pour into bottles
Wait 2 weeks before enjoying your sparkling own lemonade. You can keep the lemonade unopened for 3 months in the cellar.
And now the printable labels
