Rumtopf and Fermented Fruit

Another of those wonderful stumbling-around-research accidents dropped me onto a page about period Rumtopf and Fermented Fruit.  Fabulous!

Rumtopf, literally translated, is rum pot.  According to Journeyman Lynnette de Sandoval del Valle de los Unicornios in her article about Fermented Fruit, fruit could be fermented in two ways, with a sugar/yeast concoction or with spirits (ie, rum, brandy, etc.).  This is something I'm going to have to try even if I don't partake myself.
