(Fark)   I've got a bunch of rum-soaked almonds, cloves, and lime zest leftover from making falernum, is there any recipe I could re-use these in?   (fark.com) divider line

I'd fish out the cloves and discard, roughly chop the almonds up, and use them in a muffins or a pound cake.

You don't happen to have a ham, do you?

"special" almond butter

I would bag the almonds and send them to needy Farkers.

grind almonds into paste for Frangipane? excellent pastry filling or lovely spread on toast, bagels, muffins etc.
or break them down coarsely to incorporate in like a graham-cracker crust. or roast/praline the crumbles as a crunchy dessert topping!
or make Marzipan! (not my favorite, but Germans remain obsessed with the stuff. it does get much-improved when dipped in dark chocolate.)

cloves, eh I always keep some in my jacket pocket to chew on. if they were also rum-soaked, then double-bonus! or grind them up as an ingredient to your new famous chai-masala.

lime zest, hmm... freeze it and put a tiny bit into cold drinks, hot tea? or wherever else people normally use citrus zest - cheesecakes, pies, etc. - the whole point of the stuff is the volatiles (but you knew that) so freezing ent gonna hurt the oils.

Put them in a press and squeeze out the rum into a glass.

I guess you could use the rest as a facial scrub or something. I dunno.

The cloves would make your face all tingly.  Which means it would make a highly stimulating enema.

you could make a spiced wine with that.

visible delicious lime zest en key-lime QuarkTorte. although people ent always appreciate when you made the yogurt from scratch, to make the quark/tvorog from scratch, and then served sarcastically in an actual π-plate. (to be fair it was Thanksgiving and there were literally 10,000 desserts and people were already stuffed from dinner, so...)

nota-bene a-se: next time, buy a damned $5 pie from the store.

/springform pans ftmfw!
//"ewww, what are those... green and black bits? cheesecake... doesn't have those, does it?"
///farking morans
\V they do like it when you squeeze a lime peel next to a lighter, tho'

I wouldn't have thought of that, but whatever tingles your, um, fancy, my friend.

Also been meaning to make falernum. Which recipe you using and let us know the results.

What recipe are you using?

Using this one https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2​0​12/02/homemade-falernum-for-tiki-drink​s-almond-clove-lime-syrup-recipe.html

I hit the cloves a couple times in the mortar and pestle before starting the soak, when I don't do that it tastes like lime-ade.  Hit it too much and it tastes like clove-ade

What sort of drinks are you making with the falernum?

Grind to paste.  Mix with mashed sweet potato brown sugar and butter.   Spread on to a thin layer of enriched slightly sweet yeast dough.  Roll up the dough and cut into pucks just like cinnamon rolls.  Drizzle with rum or bourbon spiked maple or caramel.

I'd throw those in the food processor with some ginger snaps (anna's famous ginger thins is my favorite for this, but any will work) and use as a crust for a cheesecake with a lime swirl and if there's leftover crust stuff, sprinkle some on top. I also like Atillathepun's plan for cinnamon rolls.

Just one cocktail, the Saturn, and since they cost $10 to go I figured I'd start making them at home instead, .25 falernum, .25 orgeat, .5 passion fruit puree, half a lemon, 2oz gin, shake, drink in ice.  Must have electrolytes in it or something

Fascinating to discover that orgeat and falernum are their own drinks.  Making homemade orgeat next

Orgeat is useful. It adds nuttiness, sweetness, and balance to a wide variety of drinks.

Difford's Guide is another useful site.
