Easy and Delicious Mix Recipes
It is important that the fruit remains submerged at all times, and this can be done by placing a plate or saucer on top of the fruits in the Rumpot. Cover the top of the pot with cling film to prevent evaporation, and store in a cool place. When the next fruit is available, carry out the same procedure, except that from now on it is only necessary to use half as much sugar by weight as fruit. Use ripe, dry but firm fruit and never any that is overripe. Build the fruit up in layers, and do not stir as this will break up the fruit. Each time fruit is added it may be necessary to add more rum.
Continue to add fruits throughout the summer until your Rumpot is full. Suitable fruits to use include apricots, cherries, grapes, peaches, plums, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants and loganberries.
Pineapple, with the rind and centre core removed, is best cubed and is usually the last fruit added.
It will be ready after 4-6 weeks, but at it's
best after 2-3 months, which should be around Christmas.
