Step 1: What You Need
Here is what you need:
- 1kg (35 ounces) of mirabelles (small yellow plumbs)
- 500g (17 ounces) of rock candy
- 1l (4 cups) of corn schnapps
- a big jar with a screw cap
Step 2: Small Yellow Plumbs
Pick out 1kg / 35 ounces of ripe mirabelles and wash them.
Step 3: Fill the Jar
Cut the mirabelles at one side but leave the stone in. Put them into the jar. Add the rock candy and the schnapps.
Step 4: Let It Sit
When everything is in the jar close the lid and let it sit for a day until the rock candy dissolved. It should change from picture 1 to picture 2. Every mirabelle has to be covered in alcohol. When the fruits have air in the bottle they rot. So fill up the whole jar.
The liquor needs to be stored with the lid closed in a dark and cool place for at least 6 months. After that you can drink it and eat the mirabelles (only if you are old enough and are allowed to drink hard liquor).
Or you can fill it into nice glasswear and give it away as a present.
There you go - Mirabelle Liquor -
