Reggae, Israel, and Wine, oh my!

Tomorrow night I’ll be watching Matisyahu in concert happily! I’m going to have fun, and will be enjoying myself immensely with the wife. But you all want Recipes! Power! Money! Well, I can give you ONE of those… How about a nod to my mother with her recipe for 21-Day Honey Apple Wine?

First you want to start proofing 1/4 Teaspoon Granulated Brewing Yeast in 1/4 Cup Lukewarm Distilled Water. As it awakens, pour 8 Cups Apple Cider and dissolve 3 Cups Honey into the cider. Pour the juice mixture into a Sun Tea jar (A jar with a spigot on the bottom.), and add the yeast water along with 3 3/4 Cups Distilled Water and stir in 1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Shredded Ginger, 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon, 1/2 Teaspoon Allspice, 1/8 Teaspoon Ground Cloves, and 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg.

Now, Get a LARGE balloon and stretch it atop the jug’s lid, and set in a closet that is cool and dark. 21 says later, the balloon should be inflated some, and you can pull it off and cap the jug. This wine can now be chilled, and has a nice sweet taste. I enjoy this with fish or chicken, and it’s nice when you don’t feel like making mead. It also is a nice refreshing drink for during Sukkot! So, there you go! A poor man’s Mead! I’m going to go to bed to get ready for the concert tomorrow night, so Shalom and Good Cooking!

    Sorry, I find that really offensive. Racism against anyone is treife and haram.

    I don’t want to get into a political argument on a foodie site, moreover I have friends in Israel – and in Lebanon – and am certainly concerned about the safety of everyone in that region.

    But this is particularly galling in light of the recent massacre … er … error, in which 18 sleeping civilians were blown to bits. Just as horrible as Israelis killed by a suicide bomber.

    Andalusia, the land of the Three Religions, was a beacon to the world, although like anything in human history, not perfect. There have been incidents of hatred of Jews in the Arabo-Muslim world, but not even the shadow of the horror of violent anti-semitism in the Christian West.

    Offensive?? this is outrageous!

    Those zionists are worst than nazis, you are the fucking worst racists ever. I even doubt you’re human beings….

    and if you’re so religious, follow the scripts: you are the race without land, so fuck you! go to antartica.

    Always complaining about ‘terrorism’ what are you doing? state terrorism, the worst of the worst.
