Sea Buckthorn and a fat man on the beach.


Recommended Posts

My wife recently got it into her head that she wanted to make some Sea Buckthorn possets. She read an article out to me which extolled the benefits of the berries so I had little choice but to be inveigled into a trip to the beach.

The berries were extremely difficult to pick individually so I resorted to secateurs and when I had a bucket full of berries (plus leaves and branches) she only had a few berries barely covering the bottom of her bucket. I still think we will have enough for her possets with some left over for some SB vodka or gin. I wouldn't advise anyone else to get involved in the same exercise.

The warning in my first post was far too gentle. Three hours later..............

My wife couldn't wait to make the first ones. They were truly delicious. Sweet with a hint of arsenic and Novichok.
