Home made liqueur for mini glass bottles
- 2 large quinces
- 500ml plain vodka
- 200g caster sugar
Grate the quinces coarsely into a large kilner jar, covering with a little vodka as you go so that the fruit doesn’t go brown. Add the sugar and the rest of the vodka, then seal the jar. Give it a gentle shake to mix all the ingredients together. Shake very gently again every day for the next couple of weeks, then once every few days for another month. After six weeks of steeping, open the jar and strain the liquid into your sterilised small glass bottles.
- 300g cherries, whole and pricked
- 600ml brandy
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 teaspoon caster sugar
Put all the ingredients into a large, clean jar. Seal the jar and leave to infuse in a cool, dark place for two months. Open the jar and strain the brandy into your mini glass bottles.
Home made rosewater in mini glass bottles
This flavoured water can be used in cooking to flavour syrups and jellies or drizzled over cakes. It can also be used on the skin as a make up remover or facial toner, as a hair rinse, to scent your bathwater or sheets or as a perfume. It’s also very easy to make.
Half fill a heatproof bowl with rose petals then add the same quantity of water. Set a saucepan of water to boil then place the bowl of roses in the pan. The boiling water should come about halfway up the bowl. Leave to simmer for about 20 minutes. The rose petals will wilt and colour and flavour the water in the bowl. Strain the water in the bowl into sterilised small glass bottles.
