Feijoa in our area belongs to exotic fruits. The berry tastes like kiwi, strawberry and a little pineapple at the same time. A huge number of the most original dishes can be prepared from feijoa. Many make jam from it, some add it to salads, others to baked goods and desserts. But there is another proven way to preserve the taste and freshness of the berry for a long time. You can make a wonderful tincture from it. In addition to feijoa, other fresh berries can be added to the drink. For example, this tincture goes well with strawberries or cranberries. But everyone can choose berries to their liking. In this article, we'll look at a couple of interesting recipes for making feijoa tincture.

Feijoa tincture recipe

Feijoa vodka tincture is prepared from the ripe berries. Even slightly overripe fruits will do. The main thing is that they do not have any flaws and damage. Rotten and blackened berries are immediately thrown away. Homemade moonshine (purified), ethyl alcohol (pre-diluted), ordinary vodka from the store are suitable as a basis for the drink. It is very important that these drinks do not have a pronounced odor.

First, you need to prepare the following components:

  • alcohol (alcohol, moonshine or ordinary vodka) - half a liter;
  • fresh feijoa berries 0.3 kilograms;
  • strawberries or fresh cranberries (optional) - no more than 100 grams;
  • honey or granulated sugar - from 50 to 150 grams;
  • pure water (optional) - 25 to 100 milliliters.

Everyone can choose additional ingredients according to their taste. Keep in mind that cranberries will add a slight pleasant sourness to the drink, and fresh strawberries will slightly enhance the taste of the feijoa itself. It is not recommended to add two types of berries to the tincture at once. In this case, it is better to make several tinctures with different tastes.

Attention! Strawberries are suitable for lovers of drinks with a light aftertaste, but cranberries will make the taste and aroma much brighter.

Each person also determines the required amount of granulated sugar and water independently. In this matter, it is better to focus on your own taste and preferences. Most often, sugar is added to the tincture at the third stage, but only half. If necessary, the remaining sugar is dissolved in the beverage after the fifth step (filtration).

The process of making feijoa tincture is somewhat similar to the preparation of berry wines:

  1. Rinse the berries thoroughly under running water. Then the fruits are wiped dry with a paper towel. After that, the fruits are cut into small pieces without removing the peel.
  2. Additional berries (strawberries or cranberries) should be turned into gruel using a wooden rolling pin. If you are making a tincture without berries, then skip this step.
  3. The resulting berry mass and chopped feijoa are transferred to a clean glass jar. Immediately after this, vodka is added to the container (it can be replaced with alcohol or moonshine) and granulated sugar. Vodka should cover the berry mass by two or three centimeters. All contents are thoroughly mixed.
  4. The jar is hermetically closed with a lid and transferred to an unlit room. You can simply cover the container so that the sun's rays do not fall on it. The room temperature should be room temperature. Shake the container every day. In this form, the tincture should stand for about two or three weeks, but not more. If you overexpose the drink, the taste will become bitter and the color will turn brown.
  5. Strain the finished drink through any thick cloth or gauze. The berry mass is squeezed out well. Now you need to taste the tincture and add a little more sugar to it if you wish. If the drink is too strong, then it is diluted with plain clean water.
  6. Next, the tincture is poured into bottles and tightly closed with lids. When adding water or sugar to the drink, you should hold it for another three days to stabilize it and only then pour it. Over time, the tincture may become slightly cloudy. In this case, filtration is carried out with cotton wool. It is recommended to store the drink throughout the year indoors without direct sunlight.

Important! The strength of feijoa tincture ranges from 34% to 36% (if no water and granulated sugar are added).
