Will this be enough to tempt daughter Olaf to visit her old father this Christmas. Home produced apple vodka is mixed with home grown plums and sugar. Actually one smaller jar contains blackberries picked yesterday by Joshua and me. By bonfire night what was clear liquid will be dark purple and slightly syrupy. The jars are turned now and again to ensure all the sugar – the white stuff at the bottom - is dissolved. So this should be around seven litres of fruit vodka, enough for at least a few breakfasts for Olaf.
There will be a lot of alcoholic plum crumbles this Autumn.
Joshua, Jaya and me and are about to go to the churchyard to pick more blackberries. Most are still green so I am hopeful that we will have more picking post Greece but I hope we can get anough in today for a blackberry and apple crumble tonight.
