Elderflower and Blackcurrant Granola

Today it rained many kinds of rain…heavy dark gray clouded rain, sunny above but still somehow raining, misty rain, giant puddle rain…thankfully I had some sunshine in a bowl.A photo of the granola

We discovered this granola made by Dorset Cereals and it is amazing!  Too bad it’s only a limited edition granola, but we may try and make our own version once we empty our purple box.  It is made with elderflower cordial. 

I will definitely be writing more about elderflower (and hopefully foraging for some when it’s at its peak in late May).  But for now I’ll just describe elderflower as a lovely white lacy flower that can be transformed into a juice and an extract that’s sometimes added to pancake batter…among other things. Ikea sells elderflower syrup that can be made into a a drink by adding water.

I’m looking forwarding to trying more creations by Dorset Cereals….the Honey Granola also sounds yummy!

Do you have a favourite granola combination?  Have you ever made your own?  Munch, munch, crunch!

    So I know you want me to talk about the granola, which looks delicious, but since you are talking about rain, I’ll have to interject. It’s nice to have fully overcast days or completely sunny days, not a mix throughout the day. It always seems to throw my mood off! It’s like I can’t decide how to feel if the weather can’t make up its mind. :)
