    Anyone Remember Fruit/Liquor Recipe from the 70's?

    Back in the 70s I remember that various neighbors used to have fruit in alcohol that would sit out at room temperature in nice glass containers. They would add to it as weeks went on. It almost seems that it would have been part of a sweet dessert. Does this sound familiar and if so does anyone have a recipe? Thanks.

    This is an excellent and traditional German recipe and it is interesting to read the Thorsten's Note, too.

    That's it! Thank you both so much. I had tried googling it and would come up with things like pineapple in vodka and that sort of thing, but I kept remembering something syrupy about it. I was a young babysitter and all the cool parents at the time had this sitting in their kitchens.

    yes.

    my g/friends parents were alcoholics.. they had a huge clear glass container that they added pineapple chunks. Then they poured ?? vodka??? over it and let it sit, and sit.. my friend ate the pineapple all the time.. they'd keep adding fruit and liquor.

    Friendship Brandy Fruit Starter is the recipe I use, but I use apricot halves instead of peaches. They hold up and don't get as mushy as peaches. I like to eat the fruit mixture over ice cream or pound cake. You keep adding sugar and fruit, but no additional alcohol unless you use it up and need to start over!
