  • A bit of a surprise stash!!!!

    Sorting out the cellar yesterday I came across a few preserving jars dated 2010 and 2013!
    ....packed full of fruit in alcohol!
    The did say 'put aside for a few months in a dark, frost fee place'

    I spent what could only be described as a 'merry couple of hours' straining and decanting them.

    I now am well stocked up with 14 x 70 cl bottles of various fruit spirits!

    Black cherries in Calva ( cherry brandy)
    wild cherries in gin
    '44' ( apple brandy with orange and coffee)
    Mixed garden berries in vodka

    'add sugar to taste'... te he...tiddled ? yes I was!...just a tad

    Good find! Better late than never.
    Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.
