1.5 cups fresh-picked ripe peaches, peeled, halved and mashed using an immersion blender.
1 orange, juiced 3 lbs local honey 25 craisins
1/2 tsp+ D47 yeast First racking mid-September. Report to follow.
Mango/honey batch followed on the 17th. Two gallons "on the cook" now.
PEACHES n CREAM
It has been my experience that fresh peaches have a short "shelf" life. Eat, and in this case make booze, when they peak in ripeness. Medicinal purposes and all that.
I have been a fan of this gal for quite awhile. "Cutie, of course", but what a chef. This gal has serious knowledge/experience and skill sets with world wide cuisine. Fast forward (if you must) to 3 minutes for a very good muffin mix recipe. Give it a try.
POST-WWII TEXAS MELON HARVEST
Seven years building a wooden boat from scratch, this couple has finally completed their project, left the dock and headed out the river to San Francisco bay for testing.
From there to who knows where. They are still youngsters building the world. One of favorite weekly visits. A magnificent sail boat. Magnificent achievement. Enjoy
Costly to repair, me thinks.
A non-eventful east Texas week. Doing time with chores and surviving this ongoing heat wave. We are are acclimating to a degree. Even the cats are out exploring and playing ninja cat and climbing trees in 105 degrees. Water intake for all of us is several gallons a day, not to include cooking.
Broke down and brought the Dodge truck inside for a good, old-fashioned cleaning and washing. I was drenched from the humidity and enjoyed laughing at my wife's over-splash rinsing. That noise you make with sweat and water running down your face. I did not complain.
I polished the headlight covers and am keeping busy detailing a little bit each day. She is starting to look like the Dodge she truly is!
The world had to get by on its own this past week without my comments.
Have a great week and appreciate the visit.
