Mabon Blessings! Elderberry Vinegar Recipe.

Mabon blessings to you all! As we enter this liminal space of balance, may you gather abundance in preparation for the darkness ahead, and may the seeds you plant now bring you cheer next year.

Equinox blessings to our brothers and sisters in the Southern Hemisphere, also; have a blessed Ostara!

I’ll be celebrating today by bottling the Elderberry Vinegar that I started last month...

๐Ÿ’œ 200g Elderberries
๐Ÿ’œ 500ml Red Wine Vinegar
๐Ÿ’œ 50g Sugar (optional)

1. Wash the berries.
2. Remove from the stalks into a pan using a fork. Mash slightly. Add the Red Wine Vinegar.
3. Bring to the boil, turn the heat down a little, simmering on a high heat for 10 minutes.
4. Decant into a sterilised jar and leave to cool before closing the lid.
5. Store in a cool dark place for 1 month.

1. Strain. Use the berries in stews, soups, salads, or discard.
2. Decant the vinegar into a sterilised bottle
- or -
add back to the pan with the sugar, heat until the sugar has dissolved, and bottle.

What are you doing to celebrate the Equinox?! Do you have any special traditions for this time of year?

Wishing you an abundance of love and good wishes! ๐Ÿ✨๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿงก
