Strawberry Sake


Over the weekend, my husband and I infused sake with two pints of fresh strawberries. Two days ago, I did the first straining to remove the strawberries.  Today, the sake went through a second filtering to remove any bits of strawberries that remained after the initial straining.    We are going to pour our first glass tonight!

Do you want to try making this kind of infused sake at home?
Here is the recipe!

Household Songs: The Brief and Unremarkable Life of Joseph Clarence Strauss/XII

Hands–puckered, pale, and patched–
slowly grow stiff
in the geometric sea that once kept
them warm.

All branches are struck by
time’s uncontrollable thunder.
Incomplete trees line landscapes, clinging fiercely to
shifting earth.
