Rumtopf is a large sealable container holding fruits preserved in alcohol. The idea was that you added layers of fruit as they came into season. For that reason, strawberries usually constituted the first layer. They are placed in a large glass jar or earthenware pot, sprinkled with some sugar, and then covered with alcohol. The layers, with the sugar and alcohol, are repeated for various fruits as they come into season.

A Rumtopf can be kept for up to a year. Make sure the fruits are always covered in alcohol. If the fruit ferments, discard the Rumtopf. The fruits will ferment if not covered with enough alcohol.
