In our 'Christmas Drinks Cabinet'  we had what we thought was sloe gin in a glass decanter. (I need to label them) It must be three years old at least. Turns out to be cherry gin.  I have decanted the cherry gin into another glass decanter and made a simple sugar syrup.  I added the gin infused cherries to the sugar syrup and cooked them for a few minutes. I have put them into a large jar and they are cooling on the kitchen worktop as I speak. The sugar syrup will absorb some of the cherry gin flavour and the cherries will be sweeter because of the syrup.... They are very moreish and not the slightest bit mushy. If I can leave them alone they will be lovely in a week or two.  I am thinking of serving them with good ice cream. The syrup will go into cocktails.

We have plans to pick wild raspberries on the Bruce trail near our house this weekend. Not sure there are any cherry trees we could harvest fun but I would love that, they are my favourite. I've been looking at a varietal that does very well over cold winters, it's a tart cherry with extraordinary sweetness that keeps it's shape, colour, and firmness when cooked. Unusual. It's called the Saskatchewan Cherry, or Prairie Cherry.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
