The gardens of Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

Fools & Cordial in the Rain!

Elderflowers & gooseberries...
...simmering gently.

It's been far too wet gor garden jobs!  In fact, I was soaked picking these gooseberries from our little gooseberry bush.  found some pink Elderflowers from our Sambucca Nigra and there were enough for 6 gooseberry fools and some cordial. I've frozen the fools but will serve them with a topping of fresh raspberries and mint leaves and a dusting of icing sugar.  The cordial is a really fabulous colour and tastes delicious.

Finished results.
