I'll be the best urban farmer ever!

This guy is my hero! Ok, I don't really want a new old tractor (or any tractor for that matter), but he made his own honey! and then made it into Mead! Why aren't I making Mead?!? And he cured his own fresh ham into something of a Prosciutto di Parma!

This is getting me thinking that I would like to make something that I can bring to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. If I was at my family's house this year, I would probably smoke some turkey. But it really took years to get my family to get enthusiastic about my BBQ smoke ways. I don't know that my in-laws would fully appreciate the sort of sounds, smells, and mess that comes with me setting stuff on fire all day long. Plus Thanksgiving is hard enough without a major project to partake in throughout the day.

So... Why not Mead? Or at least a decent quality beer? The die is cast.

  1. The mead is looking good, I plan to try it for a holiday gathering on the 13th. I'll let you know how it turns out (and pass along the recipe if it's good!)
