Yesterday, I visited Ashikaga Flower Park with my dear friend “M”, who is pictured here. Ashikaga is known for its grand wisteria gardens; believe me, they are indeed grand!  The park is open almost year-round and when wisteria is not in season, they showcase flowers such as clematis, roses, and tulips.

Strawberry Sake

DSC_1927

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!
