After throwing up yesterday morning and wrenching both my back and side, yesterday sort of passed in a bit of a haze of feeling uncomfortable. DB gave me a morning and evening rub with deep heat and although this morning my back is okay, my right side is still uncomfortable. Yesterday I managed to eat one banana, one teacake and a little rice and smidgen of curry. Ah well, these things are sent to try us.
Finally, after life things getting in the way, I managed to finish a batch of rhubarb and elderflower jam. It is one of those recipes where you start with fresh rhubarb (I only had frozen) and layer it with sugar to allow the juice to come out from the rhubarb. It should take a total of 3 days but mine took 4 1/2! The recipe can be found here This site is truly wonderful for recipes!
Anyway, first of all I went to pick my elderflower heads and tied them into a fruit jelly straining bag and popped it at the bottom of a large bowl
After that, the rhubarb and sugary liquid was put into a saucepan and the elderflower bag squeezed well into it before being discarded.
You can really taste the essence of the Elderflower's and the jam has a tart edge to it, lovely.
