Ingredients:
2 Pound(s) Dried apricots or dried
pitted sour cherries
1 Bottle, 1.75 liter vodka
4 Cup(s) Sugar
Directions:
Recipe By: Sunset Magazine Prep Time: 15 minutes, plus at least 2
weeks for mellowing Makes: About 8 cups of apricot or 7 1/3 cups
cherry liqueur Place apricots or cherries, vodka, and sugar in a glass
jar (at least 3-quart size). Stir until sugar is mostly dissolved.
Cover tightly and let stand at least 2 weeks or up to 2 months; after
a few days shake jar until sugar completely dissolves. Cherry liqueur
may form a slightly cloudy, harmless residue at the top of the jar.
Pour lqueur and fruit, a portion at a time, through a fine strainer
into a pitcher, letting fruit drain completely. Save fruit for other
uses (recipe suggestion follows later). Line strainer with four layers
of damp cheesecloth, set over a spouted container, and pour liqueur
through it. Or for maximum clarity, strain liqueur through a coffee
filter, changing filter often (takes several hours). Pour liqueur into
small airtight bottles. Serve liqueur, or store uptight up to 6
months. (If storing in containers with rubber stoppers, place a couple
of layers of plastic wrap between rubber and bottle to keep alcohol
from softening rubber). Notes: Slab apricots are the sweetest dried
apricots; they're picked extra-ripe and soft, and are slightly
misshapen. Inexpensive vodka works fine. Serving Ideas for Fruit
Liqueurs: Drizzle over ice cream for an instant but elegant dessert *
Add a little to mixed fresh fruit, spoon over pound cake * Splash into
sparkling wine for a festive aperitif * Flavor holiday fruit cakes
with liqueur instead of rum * Sip and smack your lips happily Posted
