"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Des Recoskie


1- 26 oz 90-95% proof Alcohol
6 tbsp Sugar
3 cups Liquid Honey (unpasteurized)
2 cups Water
20 medium size Cloves
Nutmeg nut
Ginger nut

On low heat dissolve sugar to a caramel color. Do not burn.
Add the nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger to dissolved sugar,
cook 2-3 mins on low heat. Add 2 cups boiling water.
When adding the water the pot must be partially covered.
This is to keep splattering to a minimum.
When it stops splattering, stir mixture well and boil slowly
for 5 mins to combine flavors.
Pour 3 cups honey into the mixture.
On low heat completely dissolve honey ( about 2 mins)
Remove from heat and pour the entire bottle of alcohol into
a partially covered pot as to not evaporate the alcohol.
Cover tightly and return to low heat and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and taste, if it is too strong dilute with
remaining hot water. Strain into bottle through cheesecloth
and cover immediately.
