A Delectable Blend


We had some elderberry wine left from last night, so I mixed it with a fresh bottle of rhubarb mead and ... it ... is ... delectable! I think it will complement the Muckies ever so nicely. So while I made several things today - not the least being a return of Win a Whimsy! - this is all I'm sharing at the moment, because I have a fire to light, weenie sticks to gather and other assorted fireside activities to manage! See ya!

The mention of Elderberry Wine always makes me remember stories my father used to tell me. Thanks for bringing those memories to the surface :)

Are you making your own mead? Have never seen any of the exotic types. They sound wonderful!

Oh, my, yes LynnAnne ~ I have been making my own mead for years ... and funny, I've not yet made a "straight" honey mead. I always gave herbs, flowers, fruit, *something* that demands to be part of the brew!

And so far ... not a single disappointment! :D

Krissy said...

hmm, So is an elderberry a sweet or a sour berry?

rose of Walk in the Woods, LLC said...

Krissy ... the elderberry is, I suppose, a mildly tart berry with a distinct medicinal sweetness, though it's not intended to be eaten as a raw berry as it holds properties that are considered less than safe - though an alchemy takes place in cooking and/or processing it for wine that renders it perfectly safe for consumption!

BTW, most of my wines and meads are dry ... THIS elderberry wine was deliciously sweet ... and carried a good farmers' kick!
