My mom came over last night and saw the ‘jar’, tested it and said ‘Grandpa used to call this ‘snakejuice’….. Come to find out my grandpa used to make this very thing and I never new it. SO from now on its going to be ‘snakejuice’…..

Take your jar and make sure its good-n-clean and this is the rest of what you will need..

I know your first thought was the same as mine… Amish consume booze…..

My friend strolled right into the liquor part of the grocery store and snatched this off the shelf for me because, well – I am a liquor prude…. *hangs head* I admit it – a liquor virgin..

How to prevent, recognize and treat snake bites

Treating a Snake Bite

Although nearly 8,000 people are bit by venomous snakes each year, there are usually no more than eight deaths.
