One of my fondest childhood food memories was this gorgeous concoction that my Mom always had sitting on the kitchen counter in a glass canister. There were maraschino cherries and grapefruit and oranges and possibly a few other fruits and it would sit there for weeks and ferment. It turned into a gorgeous vanilla ice-cream topping or great to just eat out if a bowl but had an alcohol content of about 1000! The end result was a flavor that I now recognize as rum. Is anyone familiar with this? I want to make a huge batch of this but not sure where to begin. What ingredients do I use? Any help would be most appreciated! Thank you from a new "hound"!
