Summer Snaps (part 1)
|'The Good Stuff'' (recipe below)|
A little nod to our summer getaway. Caravans, cards and questionable cooking over fire were the focus. Along with swimming, biking, fishing and quirky little shop perusing. It was nice to have my mum camp alongside us and join us on biking/coffee/secondhand shop jaunts. And share the warmth of a campfire at the end of each day.
Places of interest: Creswick Information Centre, Lake Calembeen Caravan Park, Creswick regional park, Creswick Woollen Mills, The American Hotel, Pyaramid Connection Healing Centre, Goldfields Farmhouse Cheese, Creswick Museum, Twin Needles Patchwork, Lambley Nursery and quaint second hand shops and cute cafes lining the main street.

The Good Stuff (aka cumquat liqueur)
Place a generous amount of cumquat skins, a little sugar, a vanilla bean and a bottle of gin into a large preserving jar, cover and allow to infuse for 6 weeks to 6 months. Strain and serve, preferably chilled. Cheers!
