Does anyone have experience with preserving fruit w/ booze? Sounds a lot easier than canning and you get a little buzz to boot. Which kind of liquor works best?

I saw the article and was intrigued since I just came into a supply of concord grapes and putting them in brandy (I believe) was one of the suggestions. The recipe called for seeding the concords but leaving the skins on which sounded problematic. It would be timeconsuming to get the seeds out that way and I don't think they would look that good when done. I was thinking of making the recipe from that article that uses plums and brandy, I think.
Another classic idea is prunes and armangac. Was thinking of that for holiday presents.
These sound good to me on ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Yup! I used Cruzan vanilla rum, VanGogh dutch chocolate vodka and 43 liqueur. They were all pretty tasty--I might be partial to the vanilla rum ones, though. Pictures here:
I wish I had done other fruit as mentioned in the article. I suppose not too late for raspberries or maybe apricots. Mmmmm.
And, so ya know, I saw this article today and totally gravitated to the same line you quoted above. Classic! Hey, I'm gonna go have a tipsy cherry right now, they are smiling in the fridge just waiting for me to eat them. HEH HEH HEH! Cheers, man!
