LH 92: Vinegars, Liqueurs & Yogurt

A Listener Inspired Q & A Episode

Okay, okay…so you’re probably wondering what the heck these things have in common, right?

The answer is…not much!

Except…that they were the topics of several questions from listeners. 🙂

You see, every so often I gather questions from my listeners to use on a Q & A episode of the podcast.

These are questions that need some in-depth discussion or extra links and yet, they won’t fill up an entire episode on their own.

In this episode, I have several listener questions that sort of flow from one to the next, so I thought I’d include them together.


You will learn:

  • Is sterilizing necessary when bottling up homemade liqueurs
  • What’s the biggest worry when infusing alcohol
  • Which “proof” is best when making liqueurs
  • The trick to getting a clear vinegar
  • Can you reuse the fruit of one food project for another
  • How does homemade Greek yogurt work
  • Do you really need a yogurt maker, or not
  • And more
