The 20th of October in 2017 is also known as Brandied Fruit Day. This unofficial food holiday puts a special sweet in the center of attention. Brandied fruits can be any kind of fruits like raspberries or strawberries soaked in a mixture of brandy and sugar. Brandy is distilled wine containing up to 60% alcohol and thus brandied fruits are not a treat for children.
Anyway, Brandied Fruit Day should be celebrated by having ice cream or cake topped with brandied cherries or any fruit you prefer. Those fruits must be stored insides for a while so it can properly soak, therefore a real Brandied Fruit Day needs some preparation, but the delicious brandied fruits are absolutely worth the work.
