Steps

1. Thinly slice the fruit. Cut into any shape or size you like. Use dried fruit as-is.
2. Put the fruit in an air-tight container, and pour in enough brandy (or rum) to cover everything.
3. If possible, leave to soak for a month. If not, leave it for at least a week, before using in cakes and cookies.
