    Trying to make up my mind, I hate to present a cheese cake so soon after Richies. He set that bar high.

    And a strawberry cake has been on my mind for awhile. 

    I'm thinking.

    I personally like the peach "smoothie" in my tea, I have made some with spiced rum instead of vodka, and it really put some pep in that sweet tea!

  6. Thanx for the link!!!

    I'm going to try a few fruit concoctions this spring and summer. [​IMG]  

    A friend of mine in SF has a still in his basement. The peach and pluot brandy's are phenomenal. Just a wee bit is enough to cure any arthritis pains.

    Ya know I thought I had it made, I expected my Goddaughter's husband to give a Pooh-Pah a little help, but it just doesn't seem to go that way....LOL  Oh, he's a newly stationed ATF&E Special Agent. I thought I could get some good copper, or manufacturing secrets, if nothing else at least some cool guns to play with.

    BTW check on search, Uncle Goldie, there are some other faux booze recipes.

    I would love a distillation unit to make apertifs. 

    I had done my home work long ago, thinking with all this sugar cane (free sugar), or the syrup to make rum, I could call it ethanol, and the laws are very fuzzy. But with a Special Agent in the family, it didn't seem the right way to go. You know you can not make any untaxed booze. there is no allowable amounts like beer and wine.

    You are mostest welcome, don't forget you can make some killer jelly too!


    That's the first time to make strawberry jelly for me. We sometimes do jam, but mostly make freezer jelly that we call preserves. Freezer jelly tastes just like smushed up sweetened strawberries. Jelly is like every other jelly in the world. I just had to try it.

  18. We have no shortage on jams, jellies and tomatoes... [​IMG]

    The cabinet is just under 2" deep...

    Trust me, I've known this for while...

    Several years ago, when I lived in SF, several older ladies would swing by my friend's booth at the farmer's market looking for the "breakfast juice", around 6am. [​IMG]

    Up here at this time of year, the only strawberry we could have would be Strawberry flavored "Snow-Cones".[​IMG][​IMG]
