So your courgettes have grown infeasibly large. You can't do anything useful with them, right? WRONG. YOU CAN MAKE THEM INTO BOOZE! Want to know how to perform this seemingly magical feat of wizardry? Then read on my friends.
Step 1: Gathering Supplies
A marrow - any size, preferably large (mine's medium)
Brown sugar - volume is dependent on your marrow, I managed to pack about a kilo in
Raisins - purely optional, just a handful to mix in with the sugar for flavour
Dried wine yeast - this is to make the sugar turn to booze, pretty essential
1l measuring jug - for mixing, measuring and whatnot
A funnel - the kind you pour oil into your car with. But clean.
A demijohn - one of them big wine making jug thingamebobs
An airlock - funky little thing, lets the CO2 out and doesn't let the bugs in
Step 2: Chopping and Hollowing
Get some kind of long spoon - I used a sundae spoon that could nearly reach the bottom. Start scooping out all the seeds from the middle of the marrow, leaving as much flesh around the outside as possible. This is the hardest part of the whole affair, and it's easy. Know what that means? You're barely working, and you're getting booze!
Now this next bit should be done quite quickly - do it too slow and your marrow will absorb too much water.
Get your marrow and your jug by the kitchen sink. Fill up the marrow with water, right to the top, then QUICKLY POUR IT INTO THE JUG QUICK YOU'LL SPOIL IT! See that amount of water? That's the volume you've got to fill with sugar. In reality it's larger than that, because the sugar compresses and soaks into the flesh, but it's a good first estimate.
