Grappa Raisins

Grappa Raisins
1 bottle grappa
250g / 8 3/4 oz raisins
250g / 8 3/4 oz currants
100g / 3 1/3 oz brown rock candy

Wash the raisins and currants, let them drain well.
Together with the rock candy put the raisins and currants in a
pot/jar with a well closing lid. Fill in the grappa, put on the lid and let rest for 1 week. Serve with ice cream, desserts etc.

The one and only time I ever had grappa was at the home of a retired couple from NY who lived in the same apt. complex as newly married HH and me in St. Pete. They took a parental interest in us and invited us over for dinner (he was a former chef), and they served grappa at the end of the meal. Whoo, hoo! I bet these raisins are killer.

What a neat twist on the classic rum and raisin combo - thanks for sharing this idea Floridagirl. I could see it working well with Christams puddings.
