I love brandied fruit, it is a wonderful way to store fruit, makes a great topping on cake or ice cream, and the juice is pretty nice to drink.
The recipe for this can be found in my book 52 Unique Techniques for Stocking Food for Preppers, but I wanted to share it in a video also.
Since I wrote this in a book, I am not supposed to post the recipe (since I sold it to the publisher), so you will have to watch the video.
However, this recipe is dead simple and easy to make. It does not take much time to do, and the results are divine.
Besides the obvious food preservation benefit of brandied fruit, and the joy of alcohol infused fruit, Brandied Strawberries and other fruit is a great gift.
I know my friends love it when I bring over a mason jar of brandied strawberries.
A gift basket of honey, brandied fruits, some homemade candles and lip balm prettily packaged is a hit – especially when the receiver learns that everything in the basket was made by hand in our kitchen.
I like the cost factor as well as the cool factor of homemade gifts, and my wife likes that it is personal.
