- 1 c. brandy (or 1/2 c. rum & 1/2 c.
brandy or bourbon)
1 c. sugar
1 can peaches, sliced
(maraschino cherries, pineapple
other fruit may be substituted)
Place all ingredients in a glass or plastic container with a loose-fitting lid and allow to "work" at room temperature for 2 weeks (a tight lid may cause an explosion!) To stop process, simply refrigerate. To continue the fruit crock, every 2 weeks add 1 cup sugar and 1 cup fruit. Can be used over ice cream, crepes or even waffles. Makes a nice side dish (warmed) for any pork dish. The juice can be used as a basting sauce for baked ham, with the fruit added later as a hot garnish. A little over a cup will provide a starter for a friend.
