Preparing for cold, dark winter evenings...

Excessive amounts of currants in the garden. What is a girl to do? As there are lots of rules and restrictions about advertising alcohol in Finland, you have to guess yourself, I best not say no more.

  1. Wow! Would you share this recipe??? I studied in Finland. During the beginning of our trip our class stayed at an old farmhouse in Hogsara where a neighbor brought us a drink like this. We had way too much, but I do remember it being delicious! We asked him what was in it, but he only spoke Swedish and we never found out...

  2. Hi! This is, or will be one day, home-made wine. The currants are juiced in a juicer, and then you need, or we used a packet with all the ingredients for home wine making, it has instructions as well.

    Easier way to make alcohol from berries, is to make liqueur, my father uses damsons, but you can really use which ever. Fill a glass jar with whole damsons, pour sugar as much a you can fit in there, and then clear alcohol, like vodka or gin, as much as you can fit. Pop a lid on and leave for 2-3 months. Pour the liquid through a sieve, and it's ready to be enjoyed! These are the couple of the first things that come to mind, hope it helps!
