you can substitute the raisins for nearly any other dried out (preserved) fruit.
This is a great snack by itself or in ice cream for a more adult treat like; or a nice spiked spice bun.
You start by heating the raisins and craisins in a small pot with a tight lid. Using the cup of wine and bring your fruits to a slow boil. Stir to get the fruits to expand and absorb some of the wine. Add in the sugar to create a syrup and reduce until it’s 1/4 inch of wine or 3/4 of it have been absorbed or evaporated.
Remove from the fire and let cool for 15 minutes. It’s recommended to put this in a glass mason jar so its an airtight jar, and glass. Spoon the mixture into a jar, poor rum over and mix, close the jar tight. Let sit overnight.
Enjoy a spoonful on top your favorite cake or put in rum and raisin ice cream!
