Finally, a trick question:
Q: Can you make pálinka from rubber boots?
ChatGP: No, you cannot make pálinka from rubber boots. Traditionally, pálinka is made by fermenting fruit and distilling the fermented juice several times. During the distillation process, the alcohol content of the juice is concentrated until it reaches 40%, which is the minimum alcoholic strength for pálinka.
Rubber boots cannot be used as a source of alcohol, as they do not contain substances that would produce alcohol by distillation. In addition, rubber boots may contain chemicals that can be toxic and release dangerous fumes during cooking, so it is not recommended and would be dangerous to make any alcoholic spirit from rubber boots.
Pálinka can only be made from fruit of the right quality, the production of which is subject to strict regulations, so only properly prepared raw materials can be used to make quality pálinka.
