Homemade spiced rum is very easy to make . . . all it requires is time for all the spices to do their magic. After a couple of minutes of work and two weeks of waiting and you end up with a tasty rum that can't be beat.
I couldn't resist canning plum pie filling! Now all I need to do is open jar, dump in shell and bake! I made with yellow plums, but you can use purple too. FYI a bit much sugar, BUT I use it as simple syrup...
There’s apple butter on my ceiling. That’s the issue with making any kind of fruit butter on the stovetop. That’s the beauty, I learned while making a second batch, of apple butter in the slow cooker. It’s never hot enough to burble.
Captain Morgan Private Stock rum and brown sugar are the secret ingredients in these luscious, boozy, canned peaches. This recipe yields 8 quarts or 16 pints. Perfect for gift-giving if they last until the holidays.
