Plum Mead

I have made lots of beer over the years. But I have never made mead. So this is the year!

I recently read the book, "The Art of Fermentation", by Sandor Katz. If you have not read this you have really been missing something.

So, here it goes:

Today, I mixed 8 cups of water, 2 cups of honey, and 2 cups of italian plums (left in the fridge from last fall with lots of wonderful yeast on the skins) into a 1 gallon crock, with the lid on it, and placed it on a lower shelf in the kitchen.

I'll let you know what it looks like in 5 days.

Wish me luck!

Donna
