- Ready In:
- 2160hrs 10mins
- Enough fruit to somewhat fill a gallon jar, (cherries, apricots, crabapples, etc.).
- Place fruit, any kind, into glass jar -- pits and all, just cut off the yucky parts.
- Add sugar and vodka.
- Set on your kitchen counter and flip it every day for three months. (If you put it away you'll forget about it!)
- The first few days I place the jar into a bucket in case my lid leaks, that way I can pour it back in and go hunt for a new lid. I put a sticker on it indicating the date it will be ready and "Up on even" if I happen to start it on an even day, you wouldn't believe how many times I've thought to myself "did I turn the brandy today?")
- In three months strain it through cheesecloth or a clean dishcloth or what have you, if you want it even clearer then strain it again through a paper coffee filter.
- Bottle it and wowee it's delicious! I do up a nice label on my computer and bottle it into smaller than micky bottles to tuck into my Christmas baskets.

<p>I'm a stay at home Mama of three, and yes Kansas is my real name and no I've never been there :) My oldest daughter Dallas, is 27 and doesn't live at home anymore. She had my first grandbaby, Lexi, on Dec 10, 2008! I also have a 13 year old daughter Sydney, and a 8 year old son Jevan (rhymes with Heaven), who keep me fairly busy. I raise chickens for eggs, have 5 dogs, Mini, Blue, Teddy, Doolittle, and Jumbo, plus 2 cats Billie and Cactus. I live on a large cattle ranch and can always find something to do, even if I don't want to :) My blog address where you can find more recipes, crafts, and photography, as well as living on a Ranch posts, is at http://kansasa.blogspot.com</p>
