gad, this is so funny, you are completely reading my mind.
my kitchen has been remodeled and it's only now coming back together, sort of anyway.
yesterday while putting things away under the cupboards, I ran across the large clear canister with lid, that 25 years ago, held my brandied fruit that I'd kept going for years.
thanks for posting this cause honestly, I was going to ask someone for a recipe for it so I could start one back up again and let it simmer away into total libation
