A couple of weeks ago I started a batch of peach liqueur. It was time to strain out the solids.
You can see the solids. They’re sitting in a strainer that we have dripping into a food-grade plastic bucket. We ended up letting the peach solids drip into the bucket for about an hour and a half . We were able to capture almost two cups more of peach liqueur during that time. So we now have a little over a gallon of liqueur aging in the wine closet. In two or three weeks we’ll siphon it into wine bottles.
The Man of the House and I sneaked a taste of the peach liqueur before we put it into the wine closet. It was very nice. I was concerned that the vodka and brandy would overpower the peach taste. That’s not the case at all. It is very light tasting and very peachy!
