“I clipped this from the local newspaper and posted it for safekeeping. Looks easy and good for those cold winter nights or maybe a nice addition to a cake(?) There are no exact measurements so I guessed. The instructions listed are exactly as it was printed. You will need a one gallon jar with a lid. Servings and cook time are only listed because they have to.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 gallon fresh ripe fruit (anything you desire)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 12 gallon vodka (or more if needed)


  1. Stuff a one gallon jar with fresh ripe fruit.
  2. If plums or cherries are used, take pits out.

  5. Add 2 to 3 cups sugar.
  6. Cover with vodka.
  7. Put a lid on the jar.
