So with all the fresh produce coming out, I find myself in the situation of having too much excellent berries, rhubarb, mint, etc. to eat before it goes bad. In the past I have frozen the ones that take well to freezing, but the other day I had an idea.

I love infusing liquors, and have been known to drop coffee grinds, pepper, vanilla, tea leaves and the like into the drink to extract extra flavors. I have not, however, done this with fruit or non-dried herbs, and so I am now trying some basic vodka infusions on my excess produce.

Has anyone tried this procedure on fresh produce? If so, what did you do and how did it turn out?
