I feel like I’ve been quite productive today, I haven’t really, but I did manage to complete a fun and relatively easy task πŸ™‚
The day started well, the little were great this morning, and getting to school was a breeze πŸ™‚
When I got home I realised that 6 months had past since I put the blackberry vodka in a kilner jar to stew…… 6 months! This meant time was up for the stewification, so I set to collecting empty bottles I’d stashed and cleaning them up.
After that I reverently carried the sacred kilner jar to the kitchen to begin the final delicate operation. So I popped the lid and strained out all of the lovely nectar, and then mashed up the plump alcohol soaked blackberries in order to get every last drop of juice from them. Next I quickly made some sugar syrup solution and added it to the cocentrate. Finally it was just a case making sure I didn’t spill too much as I bottled it all up πŸ™‚
A quick taste has revealed an ok beverage, unfortunately I think I over did the sugar syrup, but there is still a hint of blackberry coming through, it’s certainly drinkable, and I think it would be perfect chilled.
After all that was done it was time to collect Aiden so that we could have our bonus Wednesday time, and we had a good chuckle walking home followed by a lark about in the hovel πŸ˜‰
