Foodie Friday -strawberry grape liquor




yesterday strolling around some of the very very interesting and beautiful
tablescapers who where linked at Susan's place..
(you are all soooo amazing and creative!!!)
I come around something new...
the foodie friday!

why not try :)))


do you know strawberry grapes? (
vitis vinifera "fragola")they are sooooo perfumed and so sweet.
last year we (
tatiana and I) made a lot of strawberry grape jam..
but this year I tried the liquor.
wow!! it is fantastic! of course, having a base of grappa it is not
sweet, it is actually very dry.
but the perfum!!! incredible!
strawberry grape liquor

strawberry grape liqueurs
you need:
1 cluster of vitis vinifera "fragola" strawberry grape
1 liter of grappa
wash the grape berries quickly under runing water.
detach the berries and put them on a piece of baking paper on a tray to dry in the sun.
withdraw in the evening if you have humid nights.
this will take 20-40days depending on the weather (mine took 50 days drying!!)
pour all the berries in a big glass jar and pour whole the bottle of grappa over them-
close the lid, and let marinate in a shadow place.
after 20 days filter and...taste!!!
pour in bottles and let rest for other 6 months.
yes, it will take a lot of time.
but I promise it will be worth it! :)))

  2. I don't think I have ever heard of strawberry grapes. Do they have another name as well? I would love to know about them. I would love for you to participate in Crock Pot Wednesday whenever you can.

  3. I have never heard of a strawberry grape....
    My son has a large vineyard and grows several different kinds but.....not strawberry. Maybe we call them by a different name??
    Thanks so much for the recipe....

    @butteryum...here usually it is plant just for domestic use. like eating them directly from the plant :))

    @darnold, please, try the link above.
    and yes..I'd love to participate. thank you! :)

    @bj..perhaps, the latin name is Vitis vinifera "fragola".
    fragola in italian is strawberry. it is not a common grape sort. very few grow it for commercial use.

    but the grapes really smell and taste of strawberry. even the dried ones.

    thank you for passing by.
