DAY 55 Weight Loss Journal

It’s Sunday, and we are headed to the Farmer’s Market. This is the perfect time to start a Rum Pot. I’ve been talking about it for years, but never shared the process on EncinoMom until now. Last year, I never got around to making it, and it was missed during the holidays.

Add this to your family traditions for a special treat on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve. The flavors of Summer sunlight illuminate Winter nights through the fruit. Choose stone fruits for best results. Omit pineapple, citrus and melons. I’ve been warned off of Blueberries and berries with hulls, so I haven’t tried those myself.

Cherries, apricots, peaches, plums & nectarines have all worked perfectly for me in the past. Stay away from apples and bananas, too. Pears work well, but I don’t have first hand experience to report.

Have fun! Let me know how your Rum Pot turns out.

Cheers,
Lisa
