Intemperate apples

October 31 was the night I strained the apples from the fortified brandy. The batch originally started out with two quarts of brandy plus one of Everclear but after pouring the liquid through a fine mesh steel strainer into new jars I came up with slightly less than two quarts. 216 more words

Daddy-o's Martinis

Apple Brandy/Cider festival

These autumn days, I felt nostalgic about my father’s wine producing days. One of my father’s hobbies was that of producing his own wine -two barrels maximum-  and every autumn as children, we were helping in the collection of grapes, which that time as I remembered, it was quite hard thing to do but we were compensating later by the fun we had stomping the grapes with our feets  in the grape mill(Patitiri). 317 more words
