> Looking for a good Rum
> Pot recipieRum Pot recipe:From Germany:In a standard Rumpot (about 2Litres capacity) add:1. 1 - 1 1/2 pound of fruit of season peeled and sliced (fresh no seeds or pits)
2. 1 1/2 Cups of sugar
3. add Jamaican rum to cover the fruit and sugar by 2 fingers width. Do not stir!
4. Wait 2- 4 weeks.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 as different fruits become fresh. Untill the Rum pot is full.
It is important to keep the lid on the rumpot, and keep it in a cool dark place.
If you start in the spring your Rumpot will be ready in time for Christmas the traditional time to drink from the rumpot. After the Rumpot has been consumed the fruit can be used in the fruit cakes.
I have used peaches, plums, oranges, pineapple, sour cherries, apples, strawberries, honeydew, apricot, seckel pear.
Some people add some sherry or merlot to the pot instead of a last addition of fruit. This probably makes up for the volume of rum that they have sampled during the process.
