A gorgeous thank you card!

You know that you’ve arrived when you are known just by your first name! Lorraine Aspill, baker extraordinaire of Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow has joined the illustrious company of Oprah and Beyoncé!

Lorraine met the postman at the Daisy Cottage Farm gate yesterday morning who gave her this letter, saying it must be for her as there is only one Lorraine in Kiltegan after all. An Post will never surprise us!

 

What was inside? It was only a lovely handmade thank you card from Holly in Ballymore Eustace, Co. Wicklow! Will you just look at her writing and drawing skills? ❤️❤️❤️

Holly’s Granny and Lorraine are proud members of the Early Risers club who listen to Shay Byrne on Rising Time on RTÉ Radio 1 from 5.30 am each morning. Holly and her Granny made the Daisy Cottage Farm brown bread which she got in Aldi (well before the lockdown! 🙈). The lovely loaf of brown bread was waiting to be enjoyed with some butter and jam over a cup of tea with her Granny – so sweet! ❤️

But the loaf disappeared to Holly’s disappointment and she still doesn’t know what happened to it! Lorraine heard the news and sent Holly one of her complete baking hampers with all Holly needed to get baking again! We’re loving the good vibes – all through Shay Byrne and Rising Time.

Just to let Holly know that Rudy the baby turkey is now living with Mrs. Muscovy and her 15 ducklings. (Rudy thinks he is a duckling – so cute xxx)

Daisy Cottage Farm Elderflower Cordial

Fresh Elderflowers

Daisy Cottage Farm Elderflower Cordial – did you know?

The Elderflower – a beautiful flower with lots of uses. Traditionally used in the treatment of hay fever, rheumatism, and the common cold.  Did you know it was known as the “village pharmacy”?

An Award-Winner

Here at Daisy Cottage Farm we use the elderflower to produce our gold award-winning Elderflower Cordial. We were so pleased to get the award and the beautiful trophy designed by Clonmel’s Philippe Hetier at last year’s National Artisan Food Awards at the Clonmel Agricultural Show!

Fresh Elderflowers

A true Multi-Tasker!

The Daisy Cottage Farm Elderflower Cordial is a beautifully flavoured cordial with many uses:

 

  • Fold some into whipped cream before we put the cream on a pavlova with strawberries.
  • Enjoy it drizzled over ice-cream.
  • One of the basic ingredients in our overnight oats.
  • Enjoy it as a refreshing drink – mix it with water, soda water or sparkling water.
  • A chilled Elderflower Bellini is the perfect way to enjoy a Summer’s evening.
  • And of course, who could resist a splash of Elderflower Cordial in a Gin and Tonic?

SUMMER IS HERE!

A New Daisy Cottage Farm Bread

Daisy Cottage Farm Oven Dried Tomatoes

Daisy Cottage Farm Oven Dried Tomatoes

We always like to experiment with new flavours here at Daisy Cottage Farm. This morning, we tried a sourdough bread with oven-dried tomatoes and a hint of basil from the farm and feta cheese. We were trying to keep to the ethos of sourcing as many of our ingredients as possible from the farm! We will keep you posted about how it tastes…
