Maybe I am stretching the concept of ‘handmade’ just a little bit too far here – but my contribution this week is a post about ice cubes!
On my allotment the annual herb borage self-seeds freely, and I let it do so, as the pretty blue flowers attract bees, and I like to use them to freeze in ice and add to summer drinks.
It does not involve any more than that – collecting the flower heads and placing one in each individual ice cube (or ice heart in this case) compartment, and filling up with water before freezing.
Making these borage-cubes always makes me happy and is a true indicator that summer has finally arrived. They are perfect in summer drinks like home-made lemonade, Pimms, or a good old Gin and Tonic (though the picture below shows sparkling water masquerading as a G&T, as I am on a course of anti-biotics at the moment so cannot indulge, boo!)
