Yeah, Faldage, real south. Like Australia.
------------------------------------------


Rum Cumquat

2 litre Bottle (empty)
1.5 Litres White Rum
1 kg Ripe and Fresh Cumquats
2 kilos Palm Sugar

Wash the cumquats of all dirt and other impurities. Drain. Remove stems from the cumquats. Place cumquats in bottle. Layer with the palm sugar. Fill bottle with white rum. Place bottle on shelf and allow to mature for three months or longer. Watch carefully so that the bottle doesn't explode. Enjoy in small doses. You can also offer the rum soaked cumquats to your friends. These will just explode in their mouths. A good joke.

To his red footed cousin:
Just looking at a tv documentary about the Blue Footed Booby, where I hear the commentator say that Booby comes from Spanish bobo.(so far so good) But that this means clown. Not 'stupid fellow' as Wikipedia sold me. That the word refers to the way the bird lifts its feet and I have indeed seen that the Blue Footed Booby walks like a clown. Very funny, not stupid.
Wicked wiki.
