“When I was 5 years old my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down, ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment.
I told them they didn’t understand life”.

John Lennon

End Of The Week Treat # 3 “Vodka Macerated Rambutans”

>

>
Yesterday  after work I finally was able to enjoy what had been getting ready in my fridge during the past week:
Probably the best dish that includes rambutan 🙂
Lately,  rambutan which used to be pretty exotic around here, have become easily available, but strangely enough, they are still not very popular. That’s actually a good thing, because it keeps the price down, at least for now.
In my opinion, rambutan is one of the best tasting, most beautiful fruits .  They lend them self to a large variety of uses. The following is one of my favorite ways of preparing them.
Peel the fruit, top with your favorite spirit, cover airtight and keep in refrigerator for at least 5 days. When you eat them, either just pick the fruit and use the liquid for something else, or do the “sensible” thing, eat them with a spoon, mixed with the liquid.  Either way, have fun, but please don’t operate heavy machinery after you enjoy these 🙂

Note: My favorite Spirits used to macerate are vodka, dark rum and red wine. Just make sure you use the best quality liquor you can afford, no point of skimping here.
