There is nothing better than the fresh sweet cherries available at this time of year. I remember trying fresh cherries as a child on holiday in France, in the days when they would never have been seen in supermarkets here! They are generally a more expensive option but I can’t help but add a punnet or two to my shopping basket.
I also grabbed the Tesco free magazine on my way out and after spotting the cherries on the front cover I had a read with a quick cuppa and it inspired me to try out a few recipes. These are all very simple and easy to put together – just the way I need recipes at the minute, quick and tasty!
I’ve been enjoying a little taste of summer with some elderflower cordial……
Just over a month ago while looking for some foliage to fill little vases to decorate the table for Hannah’s birthday party I discovered we had elderflower bushes at the bottom of the garden! (Our garden is quite big and still a bit of a wilderness, we’ve been busy renovating the house so the garden is still on the endless ‘to-do’ list!) Fast forward a month and I eventually managed to find time to make some elderflower cordial! There are still a few blooms out and about around the country but it is more or less the end of the season about now, so just about getting this blog out on time!
I searched the internet and most recipes are fairly similar, I decided to try Mary Berry’s version as she would usually be my first choice for cake recipes and i’ve never gone wrong with any of her recipes.
