The weather forecast was for a nice hot weekend, but by Sunday late afternoon, it was going to start getting overcast with a possibility of rain. They were right – we enjoyed a round of golf yesterday in Willliams Lake. By the time we hit the 16th hole, the thunder had started. It rained too, and we spent some time hiding out under a tree. By the time we headed home, the lightning had begun.
So here we are, it’s Monday morning and it poured rain for most of the night. It’s still raining, that’s OK. It’s not like we don’t have things we can do inside.
This morning, I pulled some berries out of the freezer. We’ve got 20 pounds of Saskatoon berries and 20 pounds of Raspberries thawing in large stockpots on the stove. It will likely be tomorrow by the time they are all thawed and then we can get started on a mixed batch of wine.
We made this Saskatoon/Raspberry wine a few years ago and it was wonderful! Easily the best flavour of the many different types of wild wines we have made. Here’s hoping this batch doesn’t disappoint.
I’ll be writing about the process in the next week.
