Sometimes we smell or taste something and it lets us travel back in time. For me that's the smell and taste of elderflowers. It reminds me of being at my grandmother's and the elderflower syrup she used to make. "Hollersaft."
Being at my grandmother's was always a little spooky for me as a child - me and my cousin were the only children in the family who were raised in the city. Our grandmother's big old farmhouse and the weird dialect she spoke scared us. Everything felt strange there and the time we spent with our grandmother was always a little awkward because we couldn't talk to her - we simply didn't understand her strong dialect. Not a word. So imagine two little city girls sitting at a table in the dark kitchen of an old farmhouse with an old peasant lady, silently sipping their elderflower juice.
I'm too lazy to make the real elderflower syrup... But yesterday I traveled back in time a little with that elderflower water.
Is there a smell or taste that takes you back in time?
