I got dh a gift certificate to make a batch of wine for Father's Day. It was finally ready to bottle on Friday night. He made a Chardonnay.
First we had to sterilize the bottles.
Then we had to fill the bottles and then put the cork in it.
Put the cap thingy on and then label them.
Sorry about the the quality of the photos. We also started a batch of Shiraz that will be ready for bottling by the end of September. We bottled 29 bottles and a half bottle.
I tried a new to me recipe on Friday morning.
2 cups all purpose/plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp shortening or butter
Mix together dry ingredients. Blend in shortening, I rubbed it in with my fingers. Add milk and sour cream, creme fraiche will also do. Blend well. Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake @ 450oF for 12 to 15 minutes.
Must say they were good. However they hardly rose so not sure what happened. They are so moist and tasted great with butter and raspberry jam.
