Homemade Papaya Rum (Vargas and Gulling) Recipe

Miscellaneous Untried Recipes

This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.

From Cordials From Your Kitchen by Pattie Vargas and Rich Gulling:

Boil sugar and water together. When sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and let cool. Thinly slice papaya, put in 2-qt jar. Add sugar-syrup, honey, rum and fruit protector. Steep in a cool, dark place for 3 to 4 weeks.

Strain and filter, squeezing solids to extract all the juice you can. (You may stand liqueur for a day and then rack into a separate container if you wish, to aid in filtration.) Age for 1 month,

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
