SECTION 3



THIRTY DAY
FRIENDSHIP
CAKE




INGREDIENTS


2 cups Friendship Fruit Starter

1 (15 ounce) can sliced peaches with juice

2 1/2 cups white sugar

1 (15 ounce) can pineapple chunks with juice

1/2 cup white sugar

2 (10 ounce) jars maraschino cherries

2 1/2 cups white sugar

2 (18.25 ounce) packages yellow cake mix

2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix

1 1/3 cups vegetable oil

8 eggs

2 cups golden raisins

2 cups chopped walnuts

2 cups flaked coconut




DIRECTIONS


Day One:

In a large glass jar or bowl, combine 2 cups of the starter with
1 can of the sliced peaches and their juice (each slice chopped
into 4 pieces). Add 2 1/2 cups of the white sugar and stir once
every day for 10 days. When not stirring mixture, keep it covered
with a paper towel, foil, or a loose lid.

Let sit at room temperature. Don't refrigerate it or cover it
airtight. A pan of water underneath the jar or bowl will keep
the ants out.



Day Ten:

Add 1 can of chunk pineapple and it's juice. Cut each chunk of
pineapple in half. Stir in 1/2 cup of white sugar. Stir once
everyday for 10 days. The color should change, and the mixture
should foam when stirred.



Day Twenty:

Slice each cherry in half, and stir in. Add 2 1/2 cups of the
white sugar. Stir once every day for the final 10 days. The
cherries will give the juice back its pinkish color.



Day Thirty:

Drain fruit and reserve it and the liquid. The fruit will be
used in the cake. Pour the liquid into 3 glass or ceramic pint
jars. One for you to start your next cake, and two for friends.
Cake must be started within 3 days after receiving the starter,
or you should freeze the starter to use at a later date. Do not
use plastic or metal containers to store liquid!

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour
two 9x13 inch baking pans.

It's best to mix the two cakes separately. Combine 1 box of the
cake mix, 1 box of the instant vanilla pudding, 2/3 cup of the
vegetable oil, and 4 of the eggs. Stir, then add 1/2 of the
drained reserved fruit from the starter. Stir, then add 1 cup
of the golden raisins, 1 cup of the chopped nuts and 1 cup of
the coconut. Stir until all ingredients are combined. The batter
will be stiff. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan. Repeat for
cake number two.

Bake cakes at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 55 to 65 minutes.

SECTION 5



FRIENDSHIP
BRANDY
FRUIT
STARTER




This version of fruit starter uses brandy, not yeast, just to get
things started. This delightful concoction is used in cake mixes
and served over ice cream or pound cake.

It gets its name because you share it with friends so it makes a
great gift in a pretty jar. You will need a place to keep a large
jar at room temperature.

It takes a couple of minutes daily for care and feeding but the
smell alone is worth it! Possible substitutions or additions:
fruit cocktail, apricots, mandarin oranges or pears.



NOTE:

Since this is fermented, this fruit is not for kids unless used in baking.


Ingredient-list


pineapple+chunks 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained

peach+slices 1 (16 ounce) can peach slices, drained

maraschino+cherries 1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained

sugar 1 1/4 cups sugar

brandy 1 1/4 cups brandy



DIRECTIONS


TO START:

Combine all ingredients in a clean, large glass jar.

Stir gently with wooden spoon.

Cover and let stand at room temperature for three weeks,
stirring at least twice a week.

Fruit is fermented when it is translucent.



CARE AND FEEDING:

Stir mixture daily.

Every two weeks add one cup sugar and one cup of fruit and stir
gently. Alternate fruits each time.

Cover and let stand at room temperature at least three days
before using.

Do not add fruit more often than once every two weeks.

Do not delay adding fruit for more than one or two days past
schedule.



IMPORTANT:

To keep the starter going, retain at least three cups at all times.


SHARING:

Whenever you have more than six cups of fermented fruit, you may
divide it into two portions, being sure there are at least three
cups in each portion.

Do this just before you would do a normal feeding.

Feed each portion.

Give one portion to a friend (with Care and Feeding directions)
and keep one for yourself.

SECTION 6



BRANDIED
FRUIT




Brandy or Cognac can be used as long as it is a minimum of 80-proof.

This is a formula you can use for whatever amount of fruit you choose.
The idea is to put up only fruit with outstanding flavor. It should be
ripe and bruise free. Peeling or not peeling is up to you, but do try
to use organic produce if possible.



Ingredients

For every pound of fresh fruit combine the following:

3 to 4 tablespoons sugar (depending upon the sweetness of the fruit)

1/3 cup water

Peel of 1/2 lemon or 1/4 orange

About 2 inches of a vanilla bean, split

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice or cinnamon, a piece of dried chile,
a few black peppercorns, or other spices (all optional).



Instructions

Bring to a simmer and cook until clear. Cool. Stir syrup and flavorings
into 2 1/4 cups 80-proof brandy or cognac.

Sterilize jars and lids in dishwasher by running through the short-wash
and dry cycles.

Peel and slice 1 pound ripe fruit and sprinkle lightly with fresh
lemon juice.

Pack fruit into sterilized jars, leaving about 1/2 inch head space. Pour
in brandy mixture, adding a piece of the zest and vanilla bean to each
jar. Seal and store in a cool, dark place for a minimum of 3 weeks.

Keep topping off jar with more brandy or cognac as you use the fruit. As
long as it is submerged in the alcohol, it is safe to eat. Keeps well for
9 to 10 months or longer if stored in refrigerator.

8 eggs, beaten

1 1/3 cups vegetable oil

2 boxes yellow cake mix

2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding

2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts

2 cups sweetened flaked coconut (optional)

2 cups raisins (optional)



Day One

Date: ______


Pour Starter into a large glass jar. Cut peaches into chunks then add
peaches and liquid from the can into jar. Add 2 cups sugar and stir
well. Cover jar with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and secure
with a rubber band (do not seal lid tightly as the mixture needs air
to ferment). Stir mixture once each day for 10 days.



Day Ten

Date: ______


Add pineapple tidbits, with liquid to the jar. Add 2 cups sugar and
stir well. Cover jar with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and
secure with a rubber band (do not seal lid tightly as the mixture
needs air to ferment). Stir mixture once each day for 10 more days.



Day Twenty

Date: ______


Add drained and halved cherries to the jar. Add 2 cups sugar and stir
well. Cover jar with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and secure
with a rubber band (do not seal lid tightly as the mixture needs air
to ferment). Stir mixture once each day for ten more days.



Day Thirty Time to Bake!

Date: ______


Grease and flour 4 small (8-inch, 6-cup) or 2 regular (10-inch, 12-cup)
bundt pans*. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Drain fruit, reserving liquid to be given away as Starter (should yield
3-4 pints of liquid).

Combine eggs and oil in a large bowl and mix well. Add cake mixes and
pudding mixes and stir until combined (small lumps are OK). Stir in
fruit, nuts, coconut and raisins.

Divide batter evenly into pans. Bake at 300 degrees until a toothpick
inserted in the middle comes out clean (45-50 minutes for small, 70-90
minutes for large). Remove cakes from oven and cool in pans. Invert
cakes onto serving plates. Store cakes in an air-tight container or
cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for up to three months.

*I like to make 4 small cakes. I keep one for myself and give the other
three away with pints of the starter and copies of the recipe.
