Thank you Michael! I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well. ❤️
Yummy! Love this.
Thanks Chantel! 💕
love this Diana!💖
Thank you Cindy!
Another use for your blueberries, I see 😉. It looks beautiful with the fruit still in the jars … I can understand why this will be a great gift!
It really is a great gift, thank you!
What a great idea! I want to try the pineapple one!
Thanks! It was so fun to watch the color leach out of the fruit and into the vodka.
How fun, Diane! You’re always coming up with fun stuff.

Thanks! Keeps me from getting bored! Lol
Oh this would make the perfect Christmas present for my sister and for a friend. I am definitley giving this a go later in the year – many many thanks!!! 😊
PS: Once it’s made, how long is it’s shelf-life?
Pretty much indefinitely since it’s alcohol. I made mine with vodka.
Ok! I’m going to try to make it while strawberries and rasberries are still in season and then keep it for Christmas!
Just make sure you strain the fruit out before storing. Christmas will be here before we know it!
Will do – thanks! 😊
Oh this is interesting!
Thanks it is a unique way to serve guests.
My parter John makes these all the time – we always have some pineapple infusing, or even jalapeños for jalapeños infused vodka martinis. They are quit the hit when friends come over and he’s even tried blood orange.
OHHHHHH!!!! Jalapeño infused he is brilliant!
My dad used to make some of this for Christmas gifts when I was little. I remember the jars always sat in the hall closet because it was dark.
I love homemade gifts like this. Before vanilla beans got so darn expensive, I made homemade vanilla extract for gifts too. Now I just make it for me. Lol
You do know how to make the best of your garden don’t you Diane? How nice in the middle of Winter to enjoy the fruits of your labors now.
Thanks Linda! I am so happy, I thought the birds were going to eat all my berries but I have over 2 gallons of berries so far. Even if I don’t get any more I have plenty now.
All this rain and heat probably gave you a bumper crop this year Diane!
It sure did and about one more week of picking. It’s unbelievable how two blueberry bushes can produce so many berries!
When I was a kid, a neighborhood kid had an above-ground pool in the backyard. Her parents still wanted their fruit and vegetable gardens so the pool took up lots of space, so they planted near and around it. We used to sit in the pool and reach out and pick blueberries … I haven’t thought of that in years and it seems like we had a supply of them most of the Summer. My neighbor’s small magnolia tree has blossomed for the third, maybe fourth time this year!
Oh my I bet you went swimming all the time there! Wow, what in the world is that kind of magnolia tree? Here they only blooms in the spring and only once. When my grandma was alive I used to cut her grass and she had a huge magnolia tree. I hated when it bloomed and dropped it’s flowers because I had to rake them up before I could cut the grass!
Diane – yes, it was great that Summer. It was an above-ground pool, but fairly big. Just reach over, sweet berries. 🙂 I don’t know what type of magnolia tree, but it’s been there, and a smaller one in the background, for years and the last few years, it has bloomed multiple times … that’s unusual. I’ve seen those big magnolia trees and they are gorgeous but look good for a few days, then a big wind comes along and all the petals end up on the ground. I would be mad too!
Nice! I love making things like this, that you wouldn’t expect to be able to do at home. Have you made your own vanilla extract?
Yes I even gave small bottles away for Christmas. I keep a bottle going continuously in my basement by adding a bean and more vodka as needed. Better than any store bought! Do you make your own as well?
I have made my own vanilla extract 🙂 Ready to try a few more experiments!
