Anyone who has followed this blog for any length of time will realise that we rather enjoy our food.
So, when our camp host Judy at Warrego Riverside Tourist Park in Cunnamulla, Qld requested that we use some of her garden produce we raced into town, bought a bottle of brandy (that was the hard part, apparently it’s out of fashion, anyone for Aperol?) and threw ourselves into making cumquat brandy. Here is the improvised recipe:
2¼ cups Sugar
Normally one would prick the skins with a needle and preserve the fruit whole but this being a ‘caravan recipe’ and with no wide mouth jars to hand we emptied a couple of wine bottles and cut the fruit into halves to be able to fit them into the narrow necked bottles.
Now our two bottles of Cumquat Brandy are riding happily around the countryside slowly ageing, hopefully to perfection.
