Posting this for ZWT II - Canada, as found on Epicurean.com. This is a truly different way to preserve summer's abundance of fruit...a "powerful" fruit medley at its peak and allow three months for the rum pot to mature. Vary the fruit as to personal preference and availability. Add only one kind of fruit at one time, but make as many additions as the long summer season allows. The heritage of rum and ships and the sea combined with the fruits of Nova Scotia's farmlands make it a Bluenose Special.
