I am missing in action decanting some flavoured vinegars that I have made into their clean new bottles after being strained through muslin. I currently have mint vinegar draining through the muslin - I do a few bottles of this each year and then add it to my preserved mint sauce to pep up the flavour a bit more and it is a condiment ready made which doesn't need much messing. I think I will get the vinegars out of the way first and then start on the oils. I have elderberry to decant too. I did have some bramble vinegar too but I think OH knocked this over and demolished it.
I have quite a bit of decanting to do on the spirit side too including Cherry Brandy which I am quite partial too. Looks as though I am going to be busy for the next few nights or so. Well it will keep me out of mischief.
I have also started some orange vinegar cleaner off too making use of all those orange rinds that I peeled the other day. Some of the peel is also drying on my dresser at the moment for use in casseroles during the colder months. No doubt I will have some more peels during the next few weeks too so will probably make some candied peel too and also crystallised orange peel to eat as a sweetmeat come Christmas.
I am off to do some more straining.
Catch you all later
