Citrus Dew


Ingredients

  • 175 ml Orange Juice – strained

  • Zest of 1.5 Limes
  • 60 ml Lemon Juice
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 250 g Organic Cane Sugar
  • 200 g Turbinado Sugar

This was really good — it’s supposed to be a mountain dew clone, and it was crazy refreshing. We started using it in a rum drink (just this and Flor De Caña 4-year). We call it “Dewing it on the Beach” AMIRITE

Dewing It on the Beach

  • 2 Oz White Rum, Preferably Flor De Caña 4 Year
  • 6 Oz Citrus Dew

Serve with a lime wedge and as many tiny umbrellas you can get in that glass.

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E

Ingredients

  • 700 ml Orange Juice, strained
  • 67ml Carrot Juice, strained
  • 1.7l Water
  • 200g Organic Cane Sugar
  • 200g Turbinado Sugar

All I feel like I got out of this was the carrot, but it was refreshing, couldn’t drink a lot though.

Salt Cured Eggs


  • 4 egg yolks
  • Handfuls of salt

Placed yolks on bed of salt and covered with salt. Sealed and put in the fridge, they were hardened in ~ 10 days. Grated them over salads the way you might parmesan, but honestly the “egg-y” taste isn’t something I’m all that into.

Strawberry Jam (v2)


Ingredients

  • 1407 Strawberry
