And Thus, It Begins . . .
The blossom and leaf distillation ~ branches from a sweet orange and a lemon tree full with buds and waxy bloomed white flowers. Most of the blossoms fell off the branches during transport from the farm to home, so I'll be scooping them out of the bottom of the bag by handfuls and loading them into the retort first. Then the chopped leaves and smaller twigs.
All this blooming bodes well for the copper al'embic.
