1 pint (2 cups) brandy. Sugar. Various ripe fruits.

Put the brandy into a large stone jar, and add the various fruits as they come in season. To each quart of fruit add the same quantity of sugar; then stir the mixture with a wooden spoon each day until all the fruits have been added.

Raspberries, oranges, currants, cherries, strawberries, bananas, pears, plums, apricots, peaches, pineapples and apples are the best fruits to use.

Apricots, peaches, pineapples, apples, bananas, pears and plums should be cut in small pieces.
