PS to my earlier comment: Great memories of my folks and I home-making anis, maracujá, and other liqueurs from little bottles of extract we used to get at Bettencourt Pharmacy on Nash Road in New Bedford. Great to serve to family and friends around the holidays. Cheers!

I like to roast pineapple on a spit over the pit at the annual Madeira Feast in New Bedford. I've used cinnamon, and rum instead of anis/buca. I'll definitely try adding honey and ginger next time - sounds great. Here's hoping the Feast is back on again in '22. Cheers!
