Rum Macerated Fruits

Rum Macerated Fruits

This only uses four ingredients... This rum-soaked fruit is exactly the same as the kind sold in stores, and you can make it yourself.
It tastes great with pound cake.

Ingredients: 460-465 g

Whatever dried fruit you like
200 g
Marmalade
200 g
Rum
100 g
Granulated sugar
50 g

Steps

1. Mince the dried fruit finely (If it's too much work, you can use the fruit as is)
2. Put the fruit from Step 1 in a sauce pan, then add the marmalade, rum and sugar and heat.
3. Reduce the mixture on low heat until it thickens (10-15 minutes).
4. When there's just a little moisture remaining, take the pan off the heat, and let it cool in the sauce pan.
5. Taste Step 4 and add extra sugar or rum if needed!
6. All done!
7. This is the dried fruit that I used. (2 packs of minced fruits, cranberries and mangoes)
8. I separated the fruit into 6 packs of 75 g each. This is enough for about 6 pound cakes. (I freeze the leftovers)

Story Behind this Recipe

I had previously used store-bought rum fruit, but since I started making it myself, I found that my recipe was no different than the kind sold in stores. This recipe is cheap to make.
