This week, just 3 things. Really. No more, no less.
While walking last week I found these two stunning feathers. I wondered what bird they might have come from; my initial thoughts were either a hawk or an owl. Well, I was wrong on both counts. They are wild turkey feathers (thank you Google!!) It’s kind of nice knowing that the wild turkeys like our walking path. I feel like we are in good company!
We got a bushel of apples from our local farm market. Really lovely apples, but a bushel. Luckily, I found this recipe thanks to Anni! Now, my riff on this will not include a crock pot, but I think it will still work even without that item! And, apple butter… oh yeah!
I have been seeing some recipes for Damson Gin on Pinterest and this one looks almost too easy. I have never made Sloe Gin, but I believe the homemade version will be superior to the stuff you find at the Wine and Spirits Store. I love that you use the soaked Damsons in a Crumble. Yeah. My thoughts exactly. Sometimes Pinterest can be the worst time suck on earth, but this was definitely not one of those times!
There you have it, THREE things on Thursday! Now, if you want to read about more things, head on over to Carole’s!
Those are cool feathers; your house is going to smell wonderful, and I have to go buy gin and plums! That damson gin is beautiful, and I just have to see what it tastes like. It will be a delightful gift for me when it’s ready at Christmas and I also look forward to soaked Damson Crumble. Thank you!
Those feathers are beautiful!
I made apple butter once, years ago, using a slow cooker. Unfortunately I got so sick of the smell after all the time cooking it that I don’t think I ever tasted the stuff!
My grandmother made the best apple butter ever (and raspberry jam). Good luck with your adventure.
If you want more turkey feathers just say the word – we have bags and bags of them! Have fun with your apple adventures!
Oh my gosh, Sloe Gin was a my spirit of choice back in the day… probably before it was even legal for me to have a spirit of choice!! Haha. I had no idea… and where in the world would I find damsons???
Our wild turkeys are in the woods here today. The cats dont get freaked out because they watch them and they move so slowly and with predictablity.
Lovely photo! We have wild turkeys in our area as well. So funny to see them come in for a landing, LOL.
