Start of the Rumtopf

I told you yesterday that I made some cherry brandy last night after picking 2.80kg of cherries.  Well even after eating our fill of cherries last night I still have tons left so I have decided that I shall make a Rumtopf for Christmas  ........... google it like I did........ I have a few strawberries and  some raspberries that can go in too so it should be utterly delicious by Christmas and just think of all that rum soaked fruit mush that I will be able to use like a sauce over ice cream.If you have been for a walk lately you may have spotted that it is going to be a cracking year for blackberries...... hmmmmm  now I am wondering whether to pick more cherries and try making cherry wine.  I have nothing to lose as the cherries are free for the picking.  Then I will need to make some blackberry wine..... hic...  burp....


  1. wow cherie i am drooling!! the blackberry wine sounds amazing too!! (by the way, you totally predicted my post in 2 weeks... rose oil!! )

  2. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  3. What i do not realize is if truth be told how you're no longer really much
    more neatly-liked than you may be now. You're so intelligent.
