Happy Morning to you, friends!
My day today began with this...
(yes, I know you just want to stroke that lovely stainless steel)
(a definite must-have for the task unless you want Smurf hands....and btw, no feet are involved)
and lots and lots of these
(plump, sweet, luscious blackberries).
It was time to make up some more Fat Cat*Happy Dog wine at Heaven's Walk Winery!
My job was to make blackberry juice.
And, no, I was not going to stomp'em.
My trusty Williams-Sonoma juicer was going to tackle the task for me.
1. Wash and strain.
2. Start the juicer.
3. Throw the berries in.
4. Smell that incredibly delicious aroma of fresh berries as the thick, rich, sweet juice comes pouring out.
5. Voila! Freshly juiced blackberries.
6. Now, down to the
basement winery to fill hubby's new vintage jug.
100% grape juice, sugar, and yeast will also be added to the scientific mix.
7. Check out the new wine jug we started a few days ago that's happily bubbling away.
8. And the result three months from now will be this....
Another sweet bottle of Fat Cat*Happy Dog wine ready to share with friends and family...
I saved some for you.
Well...a little, anyway.....
(And don't forget to pop over to Susan's at Between Naps on the Porch!
for Metamorphosis Monday!)
Until next time...
