I think we have the start of a party .......... magic

"How do you spell 'Love'?" (Piglet). 

"You don't spell it, you feel it" (Pooh).

 'A hug,' said Pooh 'is always the right size!'

Sansho, really you should only be putting soft fruits in the Rumtopf, have a search on the forum, I'm sure someone else was asking about them recently. I have one that I've had going for several years, topping up and taking out as I need. strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blackberries, redcurrants that sort of thing all go really well, peaches and apricots need cutting up a bit.

On a separate point, as mine has been going so long I'm thinking of having a flush out and re-start, has anyone tried making a sort of alcoholic jam with the fruit? I think I'll need to add some fresh stuff too as the fruit really loses it's colour in the alcohol.

I have just added some pears to mine, since I have lots of them this year. They are soft and ready to eat, and I sliced them thinly, and cut the larger slices in half. I also added some white currants from the freezer, since I hadn't started the rumtopf when I harvested them.
