plums from grandad g's garden...£0
elderberries from our garden...£0
other bits from the cupboard + recipe found here
i've never used elderberries before + wasn't sure if they could be used. i found another website that suggested elderberry schnapps which might make for some good christmas gifts. don't they look like black pearls? so pretty.
making jam with the rest of the plums is on my list of jobs for the week ahead.
(purple part two tomorrow)
