1lb of fruit (frozen is cheaper but fresh is better)
Any berry type fruit can be used and Raspberrys were absolutely wonderful for this !
16 oz s of Sugar
1 pint of water
1/2 bottle of vodka (cheap is perfect for this )
vanilla extract is optional
Boil fruit,water and sugar untill totally cooked and mushy then strain with a sieve. Leave to cool totally and then mix liquid with Vodka and then bottle into sterilised bottles.
We experimented here using chocolate instead of fruit and if you replace half the water with a can of condensed milk and use 12 ozs of sugar it works really really well. We used a 80 % chocolate bar which meant we had solid cocoa bits that needed straining but wow was it chocolaty !!!!
