Strawberry Liqueur

Strawberry season is here. I was reading 'Blue Lotus' blog and she did this strawberry liqueur. Since strawberries is so cheap now I thought maybe I should give this liqueur a try. Is really simple and all you need is a glass jar or bottle, strawberries, rock sugar, white liquor and some slice lemon. I not too sure what this white liquor is so Carlos suggest that I used either vodka or rum.

What you need :

2 packets of Strawberries - wash and drain well.
2 lemons - remove the skin, seeds and the white part and slice thinly
1 packet of rock sugar
1 bottle of vodka or rum

Arrange strawberries, lemon slices and rock sugar in the jar. Pour liquor into the jar/bottle enough to cover the fruits and sugar and seal well. Leave jar /bottle in a cool dark place for two months or liqueur turns nice and red. Strain to remove fruits and transfer to clean bottles.

Note : You can use any kind of sugar and the amount is up to you. It all depend on the sweetness you want.

Sweet Peppers

Look what I found at Sam's Club yesterday. Some really colorful and pretty small peppers. It looks very much like chili but it taste more like bell pepper and no hint of spiciness at all.

So, what can I cook with it? It too small to be roasted so I end up stuffing it with some ground meat and prawns. The peppers is really sweet. Have to think of what to do with the rest of the peppers. Any suggestions?
