I hope you all got a chance to read the post about yesterday's outing to the mezcal distillery. I perhaps didn't explain very well that a maguey plant (mezcal) is almost the same as a blue agave plant (tequila). It's just that it is grown out of the tequila region. Sorry, I should have put that down too! The flavour is very similar and you can see that they look very similar but different!!
Here is a maguey plant. Spiky, thicker leaves
Here is an agave plant (tequila). More slender leaves.
Anyway, hope you all got a chance to look at it because the process and the family are amazing!!
Off to make dinner and have tea. Hope everyone had a great day!!
Again, a very Happy Birthday to our niece, Lacey, who turned 30 years old today!!
