Cherry Wine / Port Recipes

Suggestions for use.

  • Try this mixed with soda water or lemonade for a cool thirst-quenching drink.
  • Also can be mixed with champagne to make a dangerous good drink!
  • In winter try a little nip at room temperature to warm you up.
  • Pour some over ice cream!
  • This wine can be mulled with addition of orange peel and cinnamon. Just warm it, don't bring it to the boil as you will lose the alcohol.
  • Use this with a trifle, with sponge cake, custard jelly and whipped cream.
  • Reduce the wine by boiling in a pot and then pour over a half cooked leg of lamb with rosemary.

Walnut Rum Liquor Recipes

Suggestions for Use

This liquor marries very well with any kind of cheese and biscuits either before or after a meal. It also goes well with a coffee or in the coffee. Also use the walnut rum liquor instead of ordinary rum with chocolate in slices, ice cream, or in a chocolate and cream ganache

Steak sauce

  1. Cook your steak to your liking
  2. Rest the steak on a plate
  3. Keep your pan on low and add approx a tablespoon of the rum, scraping off the nice bits on the bottom of the pan
  4. Add about one third of a cup of cream and turn the heat up to reduce the mixture to the desired consistency.

You could add green peppercorns before the rum and cook them for a little while and then add the cream as per recipe. This recipe makes you look like a great chef!

 

Cherry / Blood Plum Vinegar Recipes

Make-Your-Own Salad Dressing

  1. Make up your own style salad dressing in a medium sized bottle (with a lid).
  2. Add one part of vinegar to 3 parts of a good Australian olive oil.
  3. Then add 1 teaspoon of mustard of you choice, some crushed garlic and a herb of your choice (thyme, rosemary, dill, etc).
  4. Store in the refrigerator but take it out half an hour before use so that the olive oil returns to room temperature as olive oil will slightly freeze in a refrigerator.
