So, what exactly is a Rumtopf, you ask? Basically, it’s an age-old German tradition of preserving fruit in sugar and rum. Not only do you end up with preserved fruits at the end, but also a unique syrupy beverage with boundless potential.
Preserving the harvest as it becomes available with a rumtopf, otherwise know as Bachelor's Jam (why should bachelors have all the fun?!). Seasonal fruit is added to the jar as it is harvested and a little sugar and rum is added to top it off!
One of the easiest preserves you'll ever make - Mother Nature does most of the work and there's still time to make a batch as long as there's fruit to be had. Even those who don't like rum enjoy this fruit and juice infused treat.
