oh my oh my
I tried the rumtopf tonight. The fruit spooned out and served with homemade ice cream - That is sooooo delicious!
I started it back in June, and in went
400g strawberries, + 200g sugar and 70 cl of cheap dark rum.
then in went plums, cherries, pears, raspberries, blackberries as they came into season, each with half the weight of sugar and a slosh of rum.
Honestly I thought that given that these rumtopf jars turn up in charity shops – people didn’t make rumtopfs for a reason.. but as far as I’m concerned, definitely doing that again.
oh dear.. and I will have to make sure the jar is empty by summer…..
