Our obsession with preserving the season continues! This time we're looking ahead to the winter months and thought a rumtopf would provide the much needed warmth. It's hard to think of warmth in the middle of summer, we know, but we'll be glad to have these boozy fruits in a few months. We'll be adding seasonal fruit to our rumtopf every month starting with cherries and blueberries.
To start, you'll need:
1 bottle of dark rum
a handful of cherries
a handful of blueberries
2 Tbsp sugar
Wash your fruit, de-pit the cherries and place all of your fruit at the bottom of a jar.
Sprinkle with the sugar, mix, and let this mixture sit for 30 minutes before adding the rum.
Store in a cool place.
