We are really bless here with fruit trees, berries and vines. I made brandied fruit today. Have you ever started a jar of brandy fruit. You put 6 cups of mixed fruit from your orchard or use canned fruit. Three cups or sugar and one pack of baking yeast in a large jar. Stir it once or twice a day and leave it out on your counter to ferment. I put a fine clothe over the top of the jar with a rubber band to keep gnats out of the fruit. In two weeks it will be ready. At this point you can add a cup of brandy to it if you want more alcohol, or use it as is to make cakes and desserts. Or you can add another 2 cups fruit and 1 cup sugar and keep it fermenting. Or just put it in the refrigerator for later use. I love it over ice cream.
