Home Made White Cherry Rum Liqueur

Home Made White Cherry Rum Liqueur

White cherries aren’t really white; they’re gorgeous pale yellow blushed with rose.    Fortunately for me, the small fruit stall just outside the office where I currently work has had them on sale recently and I’ve purchased so many the stall holder probably assumes I’m a weird cherry addict.

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Jacket Potatoes

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Jacket Potatoes

We’ve had our slow cooker for years but until recently, we didn’t use it as much as we could have. We use it to make an overnight chicken stock after every roast chicken dinner: Strip the carcass of meat, throw it into the slow cooker with some water, put it on low and strain in [Read More...]
