This was a classic dessert when I was a child. Rumtopf is a big earthenware pot that is filled with all kinds of fruits over the summer. To conserve the fruit they are mixed with sugar and covered with strong rum. Usually it starts with strawberries and ends with apples and pears somewhere late October, early November. Once all the fruit is added, it needs to mature another 4-8 weeks before it can be served. This made it the perfect Christmas dessert and gift.
This year I made one myself and am very curious how it will turn out.
Samhain night or Halloween is a night when the veil between the worlds is The most thin, spirits are near and faeries can cross over more easily. One of the most powerful nights of the year should be celebrated with a festive and protective drink. What better then a witches brew.
I just love the warm inviting smells of apple, orange, cinnamon and clove that fill the house! When making this delicious drink! Not to mention the cozy warming taste!
We love making this traditional English drink every year for Samhain and Yule.
This year the mint in my herb garden grew like crazy, it was a very hot summer and we had bought a new hammock. So I thought: „Why not combine all three?“ In the end I did research how to make a decent Mojito and was delighted to find out, that it is not that hard to make. So we enjoyed quite a few Mojitos in and out of the hammock this summer. If you want to enjoy one for yourself, here is the recipe we use. Have fun!
I was looking for a light dessert for my son's 21st Birthday, BBQ party (Summer, 2020), when I came across a recipe for Strawberry Mojito Sorbet.
For fun, I decided to serve the sorbet as Popsicles. The recipe is easy to make, light and refreshing, especially after all the snacks and BBQ food. Plus, they were a hit!
