Literary Recipes — Anne’s Raspberry Cordial
Marilla is a very generous woman. She said we could have fruit cake and cherry preserves for tea. But it isn’t good manners to tell your company what you are going to give them to eat, so I won’t tell you what she said we could have to drink. Only it begins with an R and a C and it’s a bright red colour. I love bright red drinks, don’t you? They taste twice as good as any other colour.
— Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
- 4 pints (48 oz.) raspberries, fresh or frozen
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 3 cups sugar
- 12 cups water
Instruments Needed —
- A very large bowl
- Large spoon
- Medium saucepan
- Plastic wrap or towel
- Fine mesh sieve, or strainer
- Medium bowl
- 2 pitchers, or a gallon container
- Clean and rinse the raspberries, then place them in a very large bowl.
- Pour the lemon juice over the berries. Use a large spoon to stir the juice into the berries.
- On the stovetop, bring 12 cups of water and 3 cups of sugar to a boil. Stir till the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.
- Pour the boiling water over the raspberries. Allow the water to cool for 1-2 hours to room temperature.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel that you don’t mind staining. Place the bowl in a cool, dark area of the kitchen or in the refrigerator. Let it rest for 24 hours.
- Pour the cordial through a fine mesh sieve to strain.
- Push gently on the solids with the back of a spoon, if you wish, to extract more juice. This will produce a slightly cloudy effect in the cordial, which will settle at the bottom of the storage bottle, but it won’t change the flavour. If you’d prefer a clearer cordial, do not press down on the solids — just strain them.
- Once you’ve strained the juice from the berries, you will find that the leftover berries are mushy and quite sweet. Save them in the fridge; they are terrific served as a topping for ice cream.
- This recipe makes a large batch of cordial, which will store very well in the refrigerator if you use a clean gallon jug. You can easily halve the recipe, if you don’t need quite so much cordial.
- To serve, mix 1 part cordial with 1 part water or seltzer water. If you prefer a less sweet drink, dilute the cordial to taste. Serve cold.

Given how the Sisters of Battle view the Imperial Guard, that would be very accurate.
Yet through the various situations and last-stands they survive, they begrudgingly will acknowledge each other!
You beautiful Witch Hunters, my perfect Battle Sisters…
Character Designs from The Black Cauldron by Milt Kahl
The character design for this movie was so cool. It wasn’t how I imagined the characters as a kid reading the books (mostly because I had those ones with the neon outline of all the art), but the art had its own special appeal that I loved anyhow.
A Russian tank manufacturer has unveiled a new tram design that it plans to start mass-producing in 2015. These beautiful pieces of engineering will hold 190 to 270 passengers and will be able to traverse on even the older, worn out Russian tram tracks.
Batmobile nothing, this looks like the detention level of the Deathstar.

i don’t know if its because i haven’t been paying enough attention on tumblr but i haven’t seen anything about this on here yet. just a heads up if you didn’t know about this.
I can vouch for this being true, although out of respect for the affected party no names can be mentioned. Skyler Page is a dangerous man who has done this way more than once.
This happened to a friend of mine, and all I can do is tell people.
His bosses need to know this, and that people will judge THEM by the behavior of people they hire on.
