Northerner's, remember. If it ain't got a froth and don't come in a pint glass, it's a girls drink. big_smile

I doubt we will see Paul (a'becketts) to night as he left for the winery at Shepton Mallet at half 7 this evening

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

We picked a load of blackberries and sloes in Eastbourne last week.

Gonna make sloe vodka.
How long should I leave it before drinking? Some say at least four months, but my dad left it a couple of years when he made some, 'twas like syrup when we drank it. big_smile

Bet it must have been a bit vicious on the tastebuds too? big_smile

no taking the grapes to be pressed



Sloe vodka should be ready for xmas but would benefit if stored till winter 2011

I have made some this year as still have 4 lts of sloe gin from last year

On the contrary, it slipped down the throat very easily, and gave a lovely warm feeling on the way down. smile

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

Oh and try Blackberry brandy as well ........

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

Think I might get some of the old books out and have an attempt at some of those.

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

A lot of old recipes are available online now ....... you should look for the jam ones ...OR the pickling ones

#1704-10-2010 21:54:12

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

Things like that give me an excuse for dusting my book collection off though. big_smile You'd think I was a girl with the amount of old cookery and housekeeping related books I have. big_smile

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

I have a 1909  Mrs Beetons ............. and a lot of other old stuff for preserving although they are modern reprints

#1904-10-2010 22:04:06

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

They don't write books the same these days though, do they. The old maintenance, homekeeping and repair books etc are treasures of information. They could practically make anything do anything. A use for everything, so to speak. I bet there's some corking tips in that book?

#2004-10-2010 22:06:23

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

You would love the old mans collection ......Practical mechanics , how to do lead work , drainage and plumbing and lots of model engineers

#2104-10-2010 22:07:36

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

Has that Mrs Beeton's got the recipe for white pudding? big_smile  big_smile  big_smile

#2204-10-2010 22:08:35

Re: Been picking grapes today...........

Just found my Brown & Polson recipe book, priced at two whole shillings in its day. I was actually looking for the Bero book but found this one instead. big_smile
