I went to my local Wilkinsons (The bigger store the better) and Sainsburys, and picked up:
- 2x demijohns and CO2 release valve corks
- 1x bag of cherries (405g it turned out to be after de-stalking)
- 1x bag of 500g frozen "Summer fruits" consisting of blackberries, rasberries, strawberries and redcurrents
- 2 Litres of cheapo Vodka
- 1KG castor sugar
So I have no idea if this procedure was the right way of doing things, or in fact I have no idea how long to leave the mixture but heyho, it'll still be a merry Christmas!
I tried to dry up the fruit as much as possible but I found the frozen stuff was rather juicy! I didn't bother cutting up or pitting the cherries (Maybe I should have done?), chucked it all into the jug with 500g of sugar, and then lobbed in the Vodka.
Will post to say how tasty it is!
