Sunday morning was magnificent – flat calm on the river and sunny – so we put our driving hats on and went for a Sunday drive down the channel. We stopped at the Woodbridge jetty for a fish, but I didn’t even look like catching anything so I soon canned that and went looking lunch. It is a real larder down there, we found honey, jams, cheese, trout and heaps more. We stopped in at Grandvewe Cheeses for a quick look around – but more on that later.
Coincidentally this week Catherine and I used pretty much the same ingredients to make different things. We have been wanting to do a drink of the site for a while now and being winter this seemed like the perfect option.
4x Cups of Apple Juice
1x Cinnamon Stick
3x Slithers of Ginger (about the size of a 20 cent coin)
1x Zest of a Lemon (about 1 strip the length of the lemon)
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
1x Tsp Honey
4 Decent shots/lugs of Brandy
1. Throw every thing apart from the brandy into a pot and simmer for 45-60mins – or until the flavors of the spices come out.
2. Add the brandy and serve hot.
