Pick Your Own..... Make your own.....

I am thinking that this blog post needs little, if any, commentary??
What in the world can come close to the joy of Picking Ones Own soft fruit? - Look at that face of pure excitement? Children are really good at this job....
Mummy's little Scarecrow all ready for the challenge of the Raspberry Rows. We took a friend each so we could have a good ole natter whilst picking. I am equally as happy to pick my own, alone... so to speak. But it is good to have company too.

These years are, so far, small... but there were plenty left to come back to in a week or so.
I was disappointed my local farm has stopped the PYO strawberries but every year they were less and less successful.


I only had to tell my Little One off 3 times for eating punnets of these fruits - it would have been more if they'd been strawbs i feel....

Joy of fruit.
Joy of being outdoors. and being active.
Joy at the excitement and the *potential*......
COME ON people..... what do you take me for??? i didn't *only* make Raspberry Gin and Raspberry Vodka. Shame on your low opinion of me.
There were a couple left to make Rasberry Vinegar for later pickles and i froze some to make ice-cream with... to eat with my vodka.....
JOY i tell you.
Pure Joy x

Do you have instructions for raspberry vodka? Never tried it, and I think it might be time...
Thanks!

My father-in-law makes raspberry gin and leaves some especially for the Christmas trifle, that or his rumpot with ice cream, yummy!
Unfortunately I cannot take Vodka, it makes me 'grumpy', shall we say! I do sometimes make cranberry or lemoncello vodka for Christmas gifts.
I haven't went to a PYO as a grown up, I must, I have fond memories of stuffing myself silly when I was a wee lass.

This is my first raspberry vodka / gin / anything.....
I put in a bottle: the same weight of rasps to granulated sugar. Then topped the bottle up with the alcohol.
I am going to store in a dark place for 3 months or more and keep shaking the bottles whenever i remember.
Then i will strain into glasses and drink neat!

p.s. mine was 120g rasps and 100g sugar...

I've got LOTS of beetroot. Do you have a sensible recipe for a chutney I can make with them? I've done soup and pickled them and did try freezing but they were like strawberries when defrosted so had to chuck them.

Really like certainly is the athletic issue with the existence as well as the expansion of that which my partner and i true love.
