Merry Christmas Everyone
Looking for something to make and also you could give this as a present.
Tomato Infused Vodka… accompanied by your own homemade tomato juice.
By the way these are the ingredients for a superb Bloody Mary.
But enough of this frivolity.
Take 1 litre bottle of Vodka (you don’t have to Top Shelf on this but no Kerosene please)
750 gms good ripe tomatoes
2 x 1 litre preserving jar
Just cut up the tomatoes into wedges
Divide between the 2 jars
Quick shake and just leave for 5-7 days.
You can chill this down and have as a shot, with a drop of Tabasco
Or turn it into this excellent Bloody Mary.
Couple of hints I discovered this recipe on Alton Browns Good Eats TV programme.
I used the Habanera Tabasco, it really has a kick so be careful, how much you put in.
2 teaspoons of that were quite powerful
I like spicy but not rip the roof of your mouth off.
750gms cherry tomatoes
2 teaspoon Tabasco
3 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Good shake celery salt
Throw everything into the blender
Whiz away for at least, 1 minute 30 seconds
Either use straight away, or you can store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
Pick your Herbs from the Garden, when they are very dry. Not wet... AT ALL.
Place them into little Ziplock Bags. Gently squash all of the air out and they will keep up to 3 weeks.
For hard herbs Do the same and pop them into the freezer.
Pictured above... they had been in the fridge for over 2 weeks and good as new.
