There's this thing my grandmother makes every year, she calls it Wipferlsaft which basically means something like "fir sprout juice". She stacks fir sprouts and sugar cubes in alternating layers into a preserving glass and lets it sit on the window bench until the sugar has dissolved completely over the course of some weeks. Then she sifts the juice, heats it up just enough for the sugar to caramelize slightly and then bottles the finished Wipferlsaft up into little jars.
It's an old recipe that's supposed to keep you healthy during winter or ease any cold you might have caught. Aside from that, it tastes amazingly forest-y and is awesome for sweetening tea.
This year I want to try making my own. Look what I got so far: [link]
Aside from that, it's amusing to read through various parenting forums where people bitch about how it's dangerous and poisoning the kids. As far as I can tell, I'm still pretty alive, and so is the rest of my family, and we all grew up being fed with that stuff. Maybe they should have given me more aspirin when I was little, definitely less dangerous </sarcasm>
Anyways, how have you people been?
