Now you have been busy.

Much like Old Growth. I’ll keep most of mine frozen. They thaw quickly if needed. I do plan on making (attempting) some jelly and syrup.

Oh and I just added Greek yogurt to my shopping list :thumbsup2:

Holy hell guys! Y'all have been busy!
I'm surprised none of you are making smoothies! With frozen berries, you don't need to add ice. Berries, a banana, some yogurt, a splash of juice and some spinach. Blend and done.
Thanks so much for meeting up with me on Saturday. I'm planning on making another run in 2-3 weeks.

Well, this has diddly-squat to do with blueberries, but I started the process with this post below so I'll conclude it here too.

Stuff lemon quarters (about 3 lemons, maybe a little more) into a quart jar. Fill with vodka. Add two tablespoons sugar. Give it a shake, let it sit for a week-ish. So they say.


So after 15 days, I drained the lemon-y vodka. It has a pretty strong lemon taste, but is very pleasant. That left me with a bunch of very juicy lemon wedges . . . well, I sure wasn't gonna just throw them away, was I?! So I squeezed all of them, and wound up with this:

On the left is the vodka-y lemon juice; on the right is the lemon-y vodka.

So what to do with these things? Make lemon drops, of course!

So yeah, a few of those were consumed in the house last night. Note that there is NO sugar around the rim; these are MANLY lemon drops, goddammit. None of that frilly shit. And they were really, really good.

But it does beg the question . . . if you mix the vodka-y lemon juice and the lemon-y vodka at the end of the process, then did you really accomplish anything? Should I have just skipped the whole lemon-vodka thing, and made the same damned lemon drop with straight lemon juice plus straight vodka?
