Crafting with Liquid

So, it may not be "crafty" but I very much like to cook :) New recipes are always being tried in our home and we rarely eat the same thing twice in a month period. Recently, a neighbor brought us some extra pomegranates, there was so many that we couldn't eat them fast enough. The solution - - - pomegrante infused vodka! It may not be a "food" recipe, but it did turn out delish!

Pomegranate Rosemary infused vodka:

1 pomegranate worth of seeds (about 2 cups)*
750mL bottle of vodka
1/4 c of sugar
3-4 sprigs of fresh Rosemary
Mason jar with tight fitting lid (quart size)

Day 1: Combine pomegranate seeds, sugar and vodka in mason jar
Day 2 - 7: Mix the jar once daily (just shake the jar gently)
Day 8: Add in the Rosemary springs (you can also switch out the pomegranate with fresh fruit if you want)
Day 14: remove Rosemary (the rosemary can be very strong, so I removed it after a week to keep it from getting over powering.

Continue to let the vodka infuse. you can leave the seeds in or strain them out after a week or two.


* I recommend clenaing the seeds out of the pomegranate in a bowl of water. It makes clean up a breeze and keeps the juice, which stains, contained.
