Following the business meeting there was a most informative talk and tasting from Jeff and Sue Morris about alcoholic fruit tipples and how to make them. Jeff showed us that you can make cordials from any edible flower, seed or berry and use any spirit. He preferred brandy and vodka; vodka is useful as it has no taste of its own, enabling the fruit taste to be very prominent. We were able to sample 6 varieties of his cordials, the fruity ones being like the best. No one liked the lime flower cordial. His favourite cordial was quince. Alison Lord gave the vote of thanks. We were joined at this meeting by several members from our paired WI, Weobley.
