I had to cut the hyacinth project short for a couple of reasons; one being the short selling season (nobody in town is selling them anymore), and two, after two batches of blossoms which totaled 669 grams, into 300 grams of organic grain alcohol, the evulsion was getting weird -- viscous, syrupy, dense, dark, and super fragrant. So during the final filtration, I added 100 mls of organic grain alcohol (100 grams had been lost to the blossoms) to bring it to a total of approximately 300 grams and the results are amazing. This is a picture of a one ounce square corked bottle with light in the background illuminating the evulsion a deep magenta.
This ultrasonic business really works.
So, on to the next bit of this post ~ a giveaway! See that bottle? It's yours if I draw your name from a list of people who comment this post. An ounce of fresh hyacinth evulsion.
