jon. I am sorry for asking silly questions about honey but I was certain you used some slang, like alien`s monshine. Now I know you really meant that honey.

No, it isn`t honey coz I have never bragged about keeping bees. It is my dream to keep them but when I have more time being retired.

Hint - it isn`t honey. I already said it is for drinking.

silly questions about honey

I read it as a straightforward question.

With honey, they usually have to filter out the beeswax and other bits. Very much as in the pic.

There's definitely something being filtered in that pic.

Yes, it is and it is for drinking. Are you also acquianted with a close up in post 6?

I remember that pic. Is it part of a mash for distilling? Some of the grains do look like fresh malt.

It is mash but of fruit origin. I was making exclusive wine - less than 5 litres. What from????

I've never liked that one. Or czeremcha.

Hard to know what it is from the pics; not jarzebiny either.

Not quince.
Yellow raspberry is the answer. :):):)

Hint - When some Poles say the incorrect name of the holiday in Polish, they show that they see double.................... :):):) As if they were drunk.......... :):):)

Nobody guessed the riddle so far.
Let me enlighten you then that the mistake is made when some Poles/Polesses wrongly name the holiday - instead of saying Three Kings Day, they say 6 Kings because the day falls on the 6th Jan. Ha!!!

There was a famous politician who got even more fame by saying the name wrongly.

It is amasing nobody was able to solve it, even native Poles. I am deeply shocked. :):):) But my riddles are seldom easy, I admit.

these weeds.

They grew like weeds coz I hadn`t planted them but in fact weren`t and that`s why I collected them for future use.

I see that your wife

Stop dreaming about my wife, it is indecent. I have arranged a meeting with her for tomorrow morning. :)

certain Christmas custom.

Is it something obscure because I have absolutely no idea?

What can you see???

It looks like you're drying out something like cow parsley to me.

No, it is a widely known and followed tradition at Christmas time.
BTW, what am I holding in the photo in post 51?

something like cow parsley to me.

Wow, indeed, it looks like it from a distance. But it isn`t, it is home made Polish dill as jon suggested rightly. I need a lot of it for my preserves. :):):)

What is this giant pot used for???

cucumbers

More likely gherkins, for ogorki kiszone or malosolny.

You'd not necessarily use a big pan like that though, although it's possible to in order to sterilise them.
OP pawian 222 | 24,343

cucumbers to pickles

Also baby corn and various kinds of squash.

to sterilise them.

yes, aka pasterise.

I do need big pots to contain more jars at a time. It is called a green approach. :):):)

I tend to sterilise jars in the oven.

How do you do the patisony?

Wow, never seen it in Poland. Amasing!!!

Like cucumbers - either marinated in vinegar solution or fermented in brine.

Looks like part of a small toilet seat.

home made Polish dill as jon suggested rightly.

I wouldn't have got that. I've seen it being chopped at Polish friends' houses but dill is not a popular herb over here.

Wow, never seen it in Poland.

I think most people in the UK would sterilise jars in the oven. I'd never use a giant pot.

a small toilet seat.

Yes!!! Exactly - the seat which is regular, not small. Why am I holding it???

but dill is not a popular herb over here.

While here it is basic herb used in preservation.

As I told jon - amasing!!!!

You're using it to frame people you're taking photos of I think. If I'm right I haven't heard of it being a particularly well-known festive tradition/custom.

I was using it with that purpose but it was fully accidental. Do you imagine I wait in our house with the toilet seat in my hand to frame people who might drop by???? hahahahaha

Sorry, even monkeys like me aren`t so pierdolnięte in their mind. :):):):

I haven't heard of it being a particularly well-known festive tradition/custom.

hahahaha Very funny. :):):)

Now think hard - what was I really doing with the toilet seat???

PS. I appreciate your efforts immensely, don`t give up and you will get it, as usual.

Of course not but I thought it might be for joke purposes!

I dread to think! I doubt you were going to fit it on the bowl. Honestly, I have no idea.

It was coz I love playing such silly jokes on our family, especially when they are my wife`s family. hahahahaha buhahahahaha I have no constrain whatsoever. hahahahaha

Yes, of course, but later on. First I had taken it off. What for???

Why do people remove the plastic toilet seat from the toilet bowl before Christmas??????
