    Here's one to make your mouth water. I started a rumpot in the spring and finished it at the beginning of September. Had a sample tasting last week and it was so good I decided to start another one. The beauty of it is that you can get the fruits almost all year round nowadays so its not a seasonal job as it used to be. For the uninitiated, You acquire a largest pot that will hold about 4 litres with a lid. I have 2 which have had for years that I bought in Germany. You normally start with the first fruits of the season which are strawberries and follow on with seedless grapes,cherries,melon,raspberries,and I like a pineapple cut up into it.Weigh each fruit and add half its weight in sugar and keep the lot covered in dark rum. The rum will keep it indefinitely. It normally reaches its best in time for Christmas,if you can resist it that long. Personally have never managed it,that's why have started another one this week. Has any other funsters tried this delicacy.

    We did one last year and it was lovely, the liquid was nothing like any alcoholic drink I have tasted and the fruit was also something else :thumb:

    Get a big marrow, slice the top off, scoop all the pips and pith out fill full of demera sugar the juice of 1 lemon and pinch of yeast, place the top sellotape the top back on and hang it in a warm place. When the skin begins to weep put a bowl under to catch the juice, when really dripping hard transfer to a demmy jar and just let it all ferment till its finished then bottle, Marrow Rum.:wine::drink::party2:

    Take a merangue, Am no good at making them,so buy them in.
    Fill with rumpot fruits, conceal the fruits with whipped cream and decorate to give an exotic surprise.

    been doing them for 20 years plus

    We have had rum ports for over 20 years.. need to make sure it is a good dark rum.. keep away from the steering wheel after trying as it is very strong.. the fruit is great.. throw anything in it.. sugar as said needs to be about 50% of the weight of the fruit.
