aged comestibles

i got a bottle of 30 yr old port for a late b'day remembrance --- haven't tried it yet, but it's probably purty good

this punkin unit, on the other hand, has been sitting on my counter since last october --- it's gotten a lot lighter, but so far, no rot ---

i made pickle over the weekend --- they'll be ready to eat next week --- i also started a ginger "bug," which is much like sour-dough starter in that you start a fermentation process and just keep feeding it

in addition today i found a hunk of fruitcake in the back of the pantry, probably dating to november 2015 --- still quite moist --- dribbled a little more whiskey on it and put it back to age some more
it won't be long til there's ginger beer!

Let us know how that ginger bug goes. Might be just the thing to add to some Pimm's Cup.
