37 minutes


  • 3/4 cup Dark raisins
  • 3/4 cup White raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 3 tbsp Calvados apple brandy

Calvados soaked raisins are for years my specialty in my Dutch apple pie bakings. My apple pies contain mixed raisins and cranberries soaked in hot water first. Then I flavor them with apple brandy. Better known as Normandy finest spirit Calvados. There are plenty of recipes with Calvados cognac. There is also camembert cheese baked prepared with Calvados. In this recipe, I prepare you for making something simple which you can use in alot of s.recipes. You can mix soaked raisins as well with regular cognac, vodka, whisky and other spirits. Use the same measurement like Calvados and use alcohol of choice. During baking, the alcohol evaporates and apple brandy flavor comes with the raisins. Use for this recipe clean and sterilized jars.

  6. I am not sure if there is a plugin for this issue. Did you purchase a WP theme? If so, you need to look at your theme features. A WP theme should be Computer, tablet and mobile friednly. Some themes are focused on computer formats. These days we all walk around with tablets and mobile devices. So when you purchase a theme, it should be mobile friendly. If you have a WP free theme, these themse are very limited. WP wants you to spend money, well when you do, there are better themes available with the best features for less money too. So your problem can be a theme issue or WP account issue. If you have any questions about WP, please email to info@food-emporium.com thanks Cari

  22. The website isn't finished yet, probably never! There is so much to do. SEO takes alot of time. Because it is not only the pages, the categories need SEO too! So this is pretty much headache! There are days. Don't write too much content on one day. Sometimes I get stucked and find no inspiration at all! I try to work on the website 3 to 4 days a week (Not in a row). Besides content, the keyword is another headdache. You need to check what your competitors do and the trick is in the backlinks as well. Maybe someday I need to blog about this. greets,
