It's been a minute since I've been here, life has kept me on my toes all Spring and Summer. With all the changes and stress I've been under I thought I could use some support for my heart. I've been reading Rosemary de Fôret's Alchemy of Herbs book and really enjoying it. One of the recipes she has is a Hawthorn Cordial. I decided to give it a try hoping it tastes as good as it looks in the photograph. I changed the recipe up a bit to suit my needs, no sweetener added up front, no cardamon as I don't like it very much and extra vanilla. It looks beautiful even before I poured the vodka in it. Let's hope it tastes as good as my pix looks. In 6 weeks I'll let you know.
