It’s far too cold, wet and muddy to try and hold workshops at the Sanctuary over winter, so we moved to the warmth of my kitchen.

On 8th November we looked at winter teas, syrups and cordials. We made and tasted “cold” tea – mint, yarrow and elderflower and ginger root, lemon juice and honey infusion. We cooked a decoction of flax seed, cinnamon and orange and then tried elderberry elixir, rosehip, blackberry and Madeira syrup, ginger syrup and nettle latte.

We also made an elderberry cordial for the nine participants to take home.
