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!
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! :)))
I'm sending this recipe over to Michael at Designs by Gollum
ok..you can't find the grappa or you just can't stand the smell :)))
you can use vodka! some procedure...;)
