1st post so please be gentle! Friend of ours made this for our Solstice Party last year & its Fan-bloody-tastic.
375g bag Organic Mixed Fruit
3 x 100g tub GlacÃ© Fruits Italian Cut Mixed Peel
1kg light brown soft sugar, plus an extra 150-200g to taste
3 x 100g bags Toasted Flaked Almonds
118ml bottle Nielsen Massey Madagascan Vanilla Extract
2 x 70cl bottles Smirnoff Vodka
The leftover soaked fruit can be added to cake or pudding recipes, but use sparingly as it is very alcoholic.
Will make some this week so watch this space & I`m sure the vodka can be any make
Welcome Jon! We are always gentle with new people, just wait until you've been here for a while... Why did you say 'morning peeps', have you just got up?
TA, are you sure you should be asking such questions???
Warm welcome Jon - and Jon, those fruits sound like they would fit into a Christmas cake beautifully, and no need to constantly 'feed' the cake with alcohol - they will be soooooo juicy!
Hello!! Welcome to the madhouse, ahem, forum. We're a lovely lot really, once you get used to our litle ways...
Loving the sound of your vodka recipe, sounds quite evil!! Bet the fruit would make brilliant flapjacks, all the people falling over at work as you dish them out. If you used them in a cake though would the alcohol get burned off with the heat, thus rendering them a wee bit safer for consumption in vast quantity?
