    Default Cool Bottles

    Found some cool bottles here in Emmeloord at the local Het Goed. They had perhaps 50 or more of these. Them come in 3 sizes including 1 liter, 70 cl and 35 cl. They are only "sort of" cleaned (no cigarette butts in them, and they're not smelly, but some are sticky and all need to be washed and the labels removed. The 1 liter and 70 cl sell for 75 cents and the 35 cl for 50 cents....but only "while supply lasts." If you want them.... come get some !!!

    Elfia has mead that it sells only during the Elf Fantasy Festival, for 10 euros per 750 ml (braggot a bit cheaper). A guy we spoke to said that they import it all from Germany and put their label on it and sell it. They were doing an amazing amount of business the day I was there, with the tasting tent separated from the purchase tent to avoid too much congestion. The traditional and cyser were pretty good, but the cherry was too sweet and artificial tasting. ....cough syrup. I guess Dutch folks just need to have more of a reason to buy....

    I have had difficulty finding cream of tartar or wijnsteen here in Netherlands, but I found it at Brouwmarkt in Almere but not in the regular section for brewing. It was in their upstairs level in with the cheese making stuff just up the small (5 or 6 steps) flight of stairs... It was like 3.80 for several hundred grams, or they had a bigger bag of it with no price posted.

    That's funny, every supermarket in the U.S. has cream of tartar in the baking/spice aisle. It gets used in baking and in beating egg whites and whipped cream.

    Yeah, it's weird the stuff you can't find over here, and how expensive some stuff is. Regular old 3% peroxide goes for 3 euros for a half pint, when I can get a quart of it in Chicago for 58 cents. Can't find borax anywhere, which is great for laundry, confounding ants and insects, and a ton of other uses. There are other examples, but you get the idea...

    In Europe borax is used as fertilizer in very small amouts, and in the correction of acid soils.

    Try to get it in a shop that sells fertilizers.

    I think it doesnīt neutralize acid soil, but itīs something about low levels in these soils, as for magnesium.

    Just got about 14 kg of rather crystallized honey from beekeeper... it's a combination of linden and bladrammenas, which is an oilseed radish? Humm... taste is certainly a bit different. Here is the info (in English) on it....

    Hello there, a post from a newbie. I discovered that a company is importing a pretty decent line of English meads and countrywines. Their website also lists which liquorstores they deliver to in the west of the Netherlands. www.frosttrading.com.
