Rumtopf: fruit preserved in boozes
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Eat drink party
Apparently throughout the summer you should be thriftily preserving the best fruits in rum or brandy (I have even seen a recipe using gin called Gintopf) for "entertainment" in the winter. I think said entertainment has to do with spooning the fruit over cake or ice cream, and doing shots of the liquor. Eat, drink AND party!!!
What a marvelous idea. I'm really curious about the gin idea.
Apricots in brandy.
Peaches and nectarines would work too.
