Brandied Fruit


This is an old recipe dating before use of brandied fruit made with "starter." It is delicious over vanilla ice cream and also makes a pretty holiday gift.



  1. Let fruit drain for 12 hours.
  2. For every cup of drained fruit add 1/2 cup sugar. Let stand for 12 hours.
  3. Add 1 cup brandy or Bourbon.
  4. Put into jars and store in refrigerator.
  5. Ready to serve in 3 weeks.

Yields barely 1/2 gallon.
