My beautiful, big bottles for making Port. Gifted to us by a stranger; someone who we met in the street and took our old kitchen table and chairs off us before we got to the charity shop.
I love Port and its sweet belly warming properties. Autumn is just around the corner and once the green, unripe walnuts hang heavy in the trees it will be time to patiently start making this delicious treat. Brewing, stirring and soaking up the flavours for a good few months it will be ready just in time for Christmas.
I can't wait and might even share my mum's ambrosial recipe with you.
