Yesterday I conducted a culinary experiment! Starting from the basic mead recipe I’ve always used I made some additions to create a Raspberry and Cranberry Mead. So without further ado here is what I used:
- 1 litre Cranberry Juice
- 500g Frozen Raspberries
- 1.5kg Honey
- 3 (and a bit) litres of Water
- Lime juice
First I sterilised everything, then in a pan warmed up the raspberries in 1 litre of water and smushed them up a bit. In a bigger pan I began warming the cranberry juice and strained the raspberry mush into it. (Leaving behind this delicious looking gloop).
Next into the big pan went the honey. Once the mixture was warm and well mixed, into the demijohn it went with a splash of lime juice. After it cooled to room temperature the yeast was added. So now its just a waiting game until its ready. The pre-fermented mix tasted amazing, lets hope that remains. Hope simple was that!?
