Nice cold wave coming in. Havn't seen any talk of Boilo over the holidays. Boilo and coal stoves go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you have any left over set it on the sytove this weekend to keep the chill off . If your out make a batch.

Used to have a buddy up here from Delaware and he always talked about some Boilo. How do you go about making it? If it goes great with burnin coal then i might just be in heaven.

Well here you go. This is my recipe which most folks say is pretty good.
2 qts Four Queens whisky
4 oranges
2 lemons
2 tbls caraway seeds
1tsp whole cloves
1 tsp allspice
8 oz honey
4 cinnamon sticks
1 to 2 qts ginger ale depending on how strong you want your finished product
Quarter fruit, squeeze and put in large pot with all ingredients EXCEPT WHISKY
Simmer and stir till fruit is soft and spices seem to have done their job.
Strain through cheese cloth or very fine strainer into another large pot. This gets tricky sometimes so be careful.
Add whisky, stir, bottle, and store. I leave mine at room temp. Gets better from the second day on. It may separate and look ugly but just shake it up before using.
To enjoy simply shake, pour into your size glass, and heat. 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave for a shot. You may also put in on the coal stove to keep warm in a pot but do not LET IT BOIL. Never, ever LET IT BOIL. It may CATCH FIRE or evaporate all the alcohol. Make a batch now so you can adjust for next Christmas Holiday. Hope you enjoy.
Note: I like to use Grolsh flip top beer bottles for bottling. They look so nice for the Holidays. You can even put a ribbon on and give as a gift. Give me a PM and let me know if you like it.

Whats with the caraway seeds? Those are hideous little devils that ruin the flavor of everything they touch.

Only from Jersey. Seriously though, give it a try you might be surprised.

toothy I'm making it tomorrow night and will report back! Caraway seeds are such a strange ingredient in something you drink. I'll stick to the recipe you posted, although I doubt I'll find the 4 Queens near me.

You want to find something in the 100 proof range. In my area the state stores order a whole bunch in for the holidays. In Pa the only place to get liquor is in a state operated store. They're still living in the 1930s. You may also use grain alcohol of 150 proof if you can get it. You need to real careful not to get that near the stove though. You can also cut the recipe in half.

Since I don't have a coal stove to cook it on and the K6 doesn't get hot enough, I'm cooking it up on my electric stove. The only 100 proof whiskey I found was Old Granddad - hopefully that's ok. I made it to your exact directions and cannot wait to give it a try tonight and over the weekend.

It smells sooooo good.

Be careful when you drink this stuff. I think the concoction is accentuates the alcoholic effect. In other words you can get messed up in a hurry. I'll check later tonight as I have road trip today.

I polished it all off this evening with some friends and family. Some of them loved it, and some of them couldn't stand it. I also gave a bottle of it to my father - havent heard back from him yet. :lol: I reheated it on a Harmon TLC2000 (burnin' wood), which brought the Boilo right up to temp. Next time I'm over there, I hope it's a tad bit colder because I plan on cooking up a fresh batch. Thanks for the recipe!

I was gettin worried. Thought you were in jail or something. Some may not like it but it is unique. I suppose I'm partial cause I grew up drinking it. Hope you enjoyed it.
