I love the title of this book, it also represents my personal philosophy about running a home and managing your resources well. For me it does not matter what I have as much as, how well I use it, take care of it, and enjoy the end results.
I also like the seasons of this life, and even though it is only July, I am looking forward to the holidays. In order to be prepared, let's start with this easy formula that can be tucked away in a cool dark pantry, waiting for you use and enjoyment of it.
Also, this is so easy. There is not slicing or pitting or processing. Simply wash the fruit, dry briefly on an absorbent towel and toss in the jar!

makes - just enough for the holidays!
1 fifth of inexpensive rum
2 peaches or 3 apricots
1 heaping cup of cherries
1 1/2 cups of red grapes
Into the bottom of a large glass jar or crock, drop the apricots
add the cherries,
next add the grapes,
and finally, pour the rum over.
Cap and put away to rest, while you wait for the holidays!
Shhhh! Now all we have to do is wait for Christmas......Flavor Update: A delicious mild cherry liquor, pour over ice and sip.
