I have just received my order from jamjarshop and the bottles are fab!! I've probably not given myself enough time to make the things I wanted to but will have a go anyway (or keep them for next year!!!). Just wanted to share!!

Can I get a quick report on the Greengage brandy BoysAreLikeDogs please?

Sounds like it ought to be lush smile

what do you want to know, Jet? smile

I have tested the greengage brandy and it is v naice indeed, although a disappointing brown colour hmm foolishly I thought twould be more green [rolls eyes at self]

It it just greengages then or are there any spices added?

BoysAreLikeDogs Tue 10-Nov-09 18:19:49

no, no spices added, I just substituted greengages for plums and used brown sugar instead of granulated

[light bulb]

so that's why it's brown

gawd I am so fick sometimes

Limoncello per this recipe - deeeeeee-vine

I wanted to make sloe gin but don't know what sloes look like or where to buy them! blush so I'm going to make limoncello that was linked to on MN, rasberry vodka and I'm sure there was another flavoured vodka or gin for my BIL who doesn't like fruit in any form - even mixed with alcohol shock. Also, going to make orange and lemon cordial for the non-drinkers. I need to give my kitchen a good scrub first!!!

Thanks, I think I've read that one recently - might try the Christmas pud one too!

I'm sure I read on here a couple of years ago about putting chocolate bars in vodka - Mars bars or something? I can't find it in search. I suppose I should try and get on with what I have so far.
