It was a beautiful spring day and I decided to make this wonderful krupnikas recipe. I opened the kitchen windows wide. After straining the 'spice water' and while waiting for the honey to boil, I turned my back to the pot to do some general cleaning and tidying. When I turned to face the pot again lo & behold, several large bees were buzzing around the top of the pot. I turned towards the window and saw tens of bees exiting the garden bushes and flying towards my kitchen! I quickly shut the window and took care of the others with organic orange room deodorant spray. My message to you is this: Don't make this recipe on a spring day with the windows open!
Other than that I must say that this is a marvelous recipe. Everyone who tasted it enjoyed it immensely. I have one one question, though. No matter how long I've aged it I get a clear liquid on top and thick goopy one at the bottom of the bottle. Even after straining again through coffee filters (the very definition of eternity) to re-bottle in gift bottles months later I get a two-toned result. How to I get the mythic clear liquid everyone talks about?
