"First you get the sugar, then you get the power ...."
Probably no use for wine, but as an ex baker, if you are in asda ask at the bakery for fresh yeast: they give it away for free and it makes the best bread [I love the fact that Walmart gives away the stuff: when I asked a chi chi artisan baker in town if I could have some, he told me to get stuffed].
I used my damsons for damson gin: no mystique - some damsons; some gin; some sugar: leave it for a while. Totally awesome, and just the thing to get you through the post christmas blues.
bugger missed a trick there, something a bit stronger.
oh well, there's always another batch to start this year. The tree fruited so much last year that a big branch broke off with the weight! This is while most of the countries damson trees never fruited last year
My two pear trees hardly fruited at all, but the apple went mad, huge things the size of two fists.... anything alcoholic i can make with cooking apples? Or crab apples?
