INGREDIENTS—

One 20 oz. can of fruit cocktail

One or two 10 oz. jars of Maraschino cherries

7 1/2 cups of sugar

Place in a loosely covered one gallon glass jar at room temperature. Add the above ingredients—they will fill the jar.

Mixture will bubble some and may pop the lid off. This is fine as long as you have something under the jar to catch the liquid.

NOTE: DO NOT REFRIGERATE DURING THESE 20 DAYS OR THE NEXT TEN DAYS.

On the 20th day pour the mix into a large bowl (Tupperware Fix and Mix bowl is the correct size).

Proceed as follows—

Day #1: Add to the starter mix 2 1/2 cups sugar and a 29 oz. can of sliced peaches, with juice. STIR EVERY DAY WITH A PLASTIC OR WOODEN SPOON.

DAY #10: (more…)
