Down below the coffee shop is the cellar. Perfect for keeping the home made tipples a bit stronger than coffee or tea :-)

Herbes De Mallorca

Postby Zosherooney » October 9th, 2016, 5:58 am

I tried one of these recently, it turned out to be Anis with a pile of savoury herbs infused. I thought about buying a bottle (22 proof) 70 cl for 15 euros. Then I decided to make my own for Christm*s. Bought a litre bottle of Anis (40 proof) from Lidl for 7.65 euros and picked some of the still flowering yellow herb that grows along the side of the roads all over Spain that is either aniseed or wild fennel. Rosemary, mint and marjoram will probably follow.... Roll on the festivities ! :xtree: :xtree: :xtree:

Are there rules about how to do this? I am always wary of infusing things like that after reading about botulism when things are added to olive oil incorrectly. Do the herbs have to be fully dried or anything?

I think we've discussed the dangers of this before - I've a feeling Ian gave a definitive answer but I can't find it.

This may be of help http://www.cheftalk.com/t/50200/dangers ... rbs-to-oil

Yes, that is a help, but of course Zosh is talking about putting the herbs into alcohol, not oil. I wondered if that made any difference. I know it has been done commercially and of course by households storing things up for winter for centuries but nevertheless ... !

All the leaf varieties are under alcohol and a lighter shade of yellow today. The bottles at the airport were luminous green ! :scared:

I don't think there's a lot of risk of anything growing in a reasonably high concentration of alcohol - think of sloe gin, were you add a load of raw fruit to the alcohol, the only danger seems to be inebriation :D

Or limoncello
