January 2020 Recipe of the Month

Raspberry Liqueur

From Nora S., a great way to preserve berries. Drink as is or use in recipes. Watch this space for recipes featuring the 2020 Herb of the Year, Raspberry, and Raspberry Liqueur.

1 quart Canadian Club
1 cup water
3 cups sugar
1 quart raspberries

Instructions: Heat water and sugar to completely dissolve. Cool slightly, mix in Canadian Club and raspberries. Steep in cool place for 6 weeks. Strain through cheese cloth. Bottle.
Lovely in lemonade.

Other kinds of alcohol, such as vodka, can be used.

Nora says that her squirrel friends enjoy the strained raspberries, however getting the squirrels tipsy may be animal abuse.
