What to do with....
« on: March 12, 2018, 12:09 »
The crab apples that Iíve just taken out of the brandy & gin that I was flavouring, can I freeze them to cook up later for a booze crumble or jam or do I just need to dispose of them. To complicate the issue Iím going away tomorrow for 8 days so donít actually want to make anything with them today. If they need to stay in the liquids I could pour it back over for now & re strain it when Iím back. Iím taking some with me thatís why Iíve finally got round to doing it today! It was for Christmas presents but I was poorly

Yes you can - but dont expect them to go completely hard (so make sure the box in the freezer is stable and won't leak or spill - painful experience there  :( ) and they will lose a bit of the alcohol.  But still it is a better option than ditching them.  :) :)  I do it all the time - it takes more time than I have at any point to strain and do something with the fruit, so the freezer is a hero.

We find the booze-soaked fruit keeps for ages in the fridge in a plastic box ready to use......

Blackcurrants and honey with a sponge topping (certainly not innocent enough to be Eve's pudding!)

Raspberries in bread and butter pudding

Lemon peel chopped small in lots of recipes including the Christmas cake

Hmmmm what will we have this year?

Thanks both, Iím ashamed to say I just couldnít cope with anything else on the day so they went to the compost bucket but on tasting the gins Iíve a feeling Iíll be making them again so will be better prepared, if of course I get given crab apples again!lol
