Re: Buddha's hand liqueur & Starfruit pickles

Sounds like this is a liqueur that tastes better as more of it is consumed. :-)

Subject: [CHAT] Buddha's hand liqueur & Starfruit pickles

About a year ago, I put a smallish Buddha's hand citron in a pint jar then filled the jar with 153-proof grain alcohol. I thought it was about time to test this concoction Xmas day, so I poured a liqueur glass [about an ounce, I guess] full, screwed up my courage, and tasted it. Terribile!

So today--thinking the idea was good, just the results were not--I dropped a sugar cube in an empty liqueur glass and then half-filled the glass with the concoction, and topped it off with about as much water as there was booze. Much better; not bad, in fact, but no triple sec.

Made a jar of my first-ever starfruit pickles today. Raw pack, hot syrup. They're supposed to age in the fridge for a month.
