Wine a Little, Laugh A Lot!

PRESENTED ON SEP 15, 2015
IN PRINCE GEORGE @ VOL 5

"You can make just about anything into booze, right? Dandelion flowers, rotten potatoes, roadkill, ...just about anything!" 

Kathleen thought she won the lottery when she and her new family moved into their new home and discovered a mature pear tree growing in the front yard…until they tried to eat one. The pears were either rock hard or complete mush, with no happy medium. She tried every which way to make something edible out of the fruit, but nothing turned out quite right. Kathleen finalized realized that the solution to her problem was not edible, but drinkable! Join maker and crafter extraordinaire Kathleen Angelski are she guides us through the step-by-step journey of making pear wine.
