Does anyone know how to make this?
My friends mother used to make this fruit liquor concoction that was really yummy. She would put fruit in a very large glass jar with some type of alcohol and it would sit on her counter for months I think she used to add fruit to it. I'm not really sure as it was so long ago. Anyways every once in awhile she would open the jar and spoon it over ice-cream. It was delicious and I have been trying to find out about this for years now. Wish I was still in contact with this old friend of mine.
use a canning jar and the preferred alcohol is Rum, but Vodka will work as well. if you want to add a bit of spice add a shot of anise. The key is to fill the jar with fruit first then fill the jar to the top with the alcohol and seal the jar, three to six weeks should be adequate time to let it age.
You can use a pickling or Mason jar and drown the peeled and sliced peaches, apricots, plums,cherries (or any other fruit that takes your fancy) with 80% proof alcohol- Rum or Brandy will be ideal. It preserves the fruit - the alcohol keeps it sterile - the fruit takes on the alcohol flavours and the alcohol infuses with the fruit flavourings. You can also sweeten it with some sugar. Occasionally puréed berries can make a potent combination with some wine and will make a brilliant coulis to use with your deserts. yum. The fruit-alcohol combination is a great way to preserve summer fruits so they last all year long. The alcohol can be used to douse other desserts too as the fruit flavours enhance the experiences.
We have done this with blackberries that we pick from hedgerows in the autumn. Get a bottle of vodka, pour a bit out and then stuff full of berries. Store out of the sun. Every couple of days, take the bottle out, turn it upside down a couple of times to get the fruit circulating evenly in the bottle. After 2 or 3 months it is ready to either drink or could be poured over ice cream.
The whole process undergoes fermentation,no matter how you mix it,it will still give you the same result.
I am so glad you asked this question. I remember my mom doing the same concoction. I think I need to get out the mason jars!
you can also make your own kahlua this way - we found freeze dried coffee works best - put several tablespoons in a q quart jar, add vanilla bean or extract and fill with vodka or similar
This sounds like a type of sangria. Try googling a recipe.
No it is not sangria. I found the answer I needed through Hmrjmr1, Domco and Nakmeister, Thanks so much guys!
This is probably brandied fruit. Put your fruits in large sterilised preserving jar. Dissolve sugar in brandy (abt 500g sugar to 600ml brandy), add a few whole spices if you like eg vanilla bean, or cinnamon stick. Pour it over the fruit and seal the jar tight. Leave it for at least 2 months before you use it.
Soft fruit like berries are probably a bit risky in terms of how well they will keep. But it's a good way to preserve apricots, cherries, cumquats. Try brandied cumquats - it's really wonderful. Hope this helps.
Thats what secret of recipe is all about and it has a long history attached to it. I think you should ask her or try buying the recipe from her.
