Ok,...I just finished another bee book from the library but dont recollect the title off hand. Anyways, there was a section about making mead..The author made me face reality about mead...She stated that the making of mead was pretty much finished off after people started making wine. She stated that she couldnt understand why people continue to make a big deal out of making mead other than the historical aspect, She continued on, saying that she has never tasted mead before that was worth writing home about.
Now,...thinking it over.....I've made 3 batches and all three tasted GREAT!!!
The fact of the matter, in all honestly............Its LOUSY!!!
I liked it because I made it, not because it tasted good! I made it plain,...I made it Bubbly..I even made it PINK!!....But it NEVER tasted like the "Nectar of the gods".
With the alcohol content though, it tasted like rocket fuel! It will send me off like a rocket too!
I more than likely WILL continue to make mead...Just because I can! Not everybody can do it, even though its relatively easy to make!...When, and if, I make some that taste good, I'll let you know....But, I'll warn you now.....I probably wont remember the recipe as I just pretty much throw the stuff together!!
ALERT!! ALERT!!! ALERT!!!
Janelles sitting right behind me, and i just told her what i wrote.....GuESSS WHAT????
She just informed me that the bottle of mead i gave my sister,....wellll.......My sister POURED IT DOWN THE DRAIN!!!....And She told me she liked it!!!!
Janelle said she wasnt supposed to tell me, but I guess after me writing the truth about mead, she felt obligated to tell the truth as to what my sister did!!!
Isnt this a TRIP???
Janelle just told me she really informed me of my sisters actions just so i wouldnt give her another bottle!!!
Well,.....there ya go..Uh oh,.......Janelle just said"Maybe you should just give her 3 or 4 bottles for Christmas...and just sit back and watch!"
Janelle just said that Dianne, my sister actually said,"Its the most horrible stuff I've ever drank!"
Funny,........"The Truth Will Set You Free" , huh?.............or CRAZY!!!
Now,.....My conscience is clear...I have no more secrets I'm hldling back from you guys!
