It’s been almost an year since my last post. There were times when I so badly wanted to get back into action, but, one or the other issue cropped up. Now that I’m free, I have all the time to get back to my experiments. With D at home for his semester break, the scope of my experiments have broadened. My next mission is to strike off as many recipes as possible from the long list he has given. The first recipe that comes after the long break is that of Star fruit Wine.
During our trip to Kerala last month, I saw star fruits at J’s place. Star fruit, also known as carambola, is a star-shaped tropical fruit with sweet and sour flavor. This was the first yield of star fruits at home. The moment I spotted those ripe fruits, I had already made up my mind of making something out of it. The first thought that crossed my mind was to try making wine. Once back home, I scoured through my recipe book to see if I had any star fruit wine recipes. Alas ! My only option was to adapt from the existing wine recipe collection.
On the day of opening the jar, I was a bit too anxious. Relief took over the feeling of anxiety, when D gave his stamp of approval. 🙂
