meat, father's day 

despite dreading having to spend time with family during father's day, i made pulled pork for the occasion, so at least cooking was fun

used J. Kenji Lopez-Alt's recipe for doing it using a water circulator

apparently this is what strawberries look like after being soaked in everclear

alc 

alllllrighty

trying three experiments right now

jar 1 (top): only strawberries and everclear

jar 2 (bottom left): strawberries and everclear with mint, rosemary and tarragon added (6 or so mint leaves, a tsp each of the rosemary and tarragon, could only get dried stuff for those two :( )
jar 3 (bottom right): strawberries and everclear with sage, rosemary and basil (5-6 sage leaves, 3-4 basil leaves, another 1 tsp of dried rosemary)

the strawberries to everclear ratio i used was approximately 100g strawberries to 55-65g of everclear

honestly i kinda just went by getting approximately 100g of strawberries and then adding enough everclear to fill the jar

i'm excited!! gonna swirl these around a bit each day and check back in about 3 days i think
