Something a little different that I found in a cook book of mine. Sounds very easy and well worth trying! Times are rest times until drinkable.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Rinse the elderberry flowers- they must be just in bloom.
  2. Cut the lemon into thin slices and mix with the flowers and the remaining ingredients in a reasonably large container.
  3. Stir.
  4. Cover the container and leave in a warm place.
  5. The juice can be drunk after 24 hours.
  6. If necessary add lemon and honey to taste.
  7. After 2-3 days the drink will begin to effervesce.
  8. Then sieve, put into screwtop bottles and store in a dark room.
  9. The juice will turn into sparkling wine in around 4 weeks.
