I had a halfway decent amount of dried fruit and rum left over from baking ....... So I decided to make some "dried fruit in rum!"
Dried fruits soaked in rum
IngredientsDried fruits in moderation
A little rum
Heatproof glass jar, any size
You will need enough to thoroughly soak the dried fruits in the rum. The jars must be sterilized by boiling or using alcohol before use! Be careful not to use clean containers or mold will grow.
How to make1. the most important step in making delicious rum soaked dried fruit is to prepare the dried fruit! First, chop large dried fruits into small pieces about the size of raisins.
Commercial dried fruits are often coated with oil or sugar, so they should be pre-cooked in boiling water for 15 to 20 seconds, or placed in a colander and slowly run boiling water over the dried fruits. Pre-boiling removes the coating from the dried fruit.
Wipe them dry with kitchen paper, and you're ready to go! If you plan to store the dried fruits for a long time, it is recommended to dry them further in the sun to drain off the water (to prevent mold).
Pour rum until the dried fruits are covered. I put in a little more dried fruit because I plan to use it up right away, but if you plan to soak it for a long time, fill the jar to the 6th or 7th fill and pour in plenty of rum!
Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator or in a cool, dark place. If you run out of rum, pour more until the dried fruits are completely soaked. When the dried fruit is plump, it's done!
They taste good enough to soak overnight!The dried fruit absorbs a lot of rum, making it plump and juicy! The best time to eat them is about a week to 10 days after soaking, but they absorb a lot of rum just by soaking overnight, so you can enjoy them at your favorite time. Although it can be stored in a cool, dark place for about a month, it is recommended to consume it as soon as possible to prevent mold from growing. Also, be sure to use a clean spoon when you take them out!
You can also make it in a large airtight container and stock it up for use anytime you need to consume leftover rum or dried fruit! You can enjoy it in a variety of ways, such as with ice cream, yogurt, or in tea.
