brandied apricots

last you heard from me was spring
and now we are in summer
full stop
been busy on the farm
enough to keep us very busy

i have been cooking and crafting and lots of other things
but not much blogging
my late nights are taken up by
deep and heavy sleep!

we picked a bucket load of apricots the other day
and i have been working to preserve them for our
winter larder
this year
i have decided to brandy some 
which is a fancy way of saying
infusing with brandy
i've loaded my jars with 
freshly washed fruit
(sliced in half and pitted)
a sprinkle of sugar
(about a tablespoon per jar)
poured on the brandy

in some 
i added a few extra bits
rosemary in one
cinnamon stick in another
vanilla bean in a third

there are so many lovely combinations to try
i am popping these onto a shelf, in a cool pantry
but the fridge would be a great place too
(if only i had room in the fridge)
