Rhubarb Liquor ready to rest
And there they sat for a week or more, then they got moved into another cupboard. At least now it was some where that I would see it more often so surely I would get it done, right? NOT! Finally today months after I started, I did the next step. I was so surprised and delighted when as it was straining, this beautiful color appeared. The directions said to taste it after adding the sugar syrup and adjust for sweetness, but to beware it would have a "harsh" flavor. Well, maybe marinating for 3 months helps because it already tastes wonderful!!
But I did get it poured into these two jars. One is four cups, the other is eight. So I have 12 cups of this moonshine! I mean rhubarb liquor.....
Maybe is some people are lucky they might get a nice little container of a bit for Christmas.
Since it is supposed to sit now again for at least a month, I'm planning to bring it out for Thanksgiving and give it a toast.
Anyone still with me out here?? I'm feeling a blast of posts coming out of here in the next few days.
