Winter canning, booze edition (aka, mead sangria)
So this is just about the easiest thing in the world, but nonetheless, I feel a little accomplished and happy every time I gaze up at the kitchen window ledge to see these ruby beauties soaking up sugar and sunshine.
What I used:
-Mason jar (I am so hip)
-Old garlic jar (uh, really really washed...garlic-cherry mead has about zero appeal to me, I don't know about you...)
-Oranges (a few slices)
-Cherry honey mead (there's sweet, and then there's super sweet, and this fall squarely in the super sweet category!)
Unrelated to this, but to the "homestead" in general: we're now renting out our garage. This brings in slightly more money each month, which can now be put towards getting those raised beds put in...
